Example of collecting evidence of learning and linking it to personal reflection diary and goals
Extract from a personal reflection diary: I have always avoided ‘talking politics’ because I thought it was rude. But I decided to find out more about my partner’s origins and found out that she lives in an area where there are a lot of ‘separatists’. I have always thought of people like that as a terrorists or something so I was a bit afraid to bring this up in our chats. But someone here explained it to me a bit more and so I decided to ask her directly. And she was really cool about answering me so I guess it was OK! I think I understand now about how to “use the fact that online exchanges are made up of a mix of cultures and languages to enrich the encounter”:) I have learnt more about more partner by asking!
Here’s the extract from our chat that shows me asking her about her political beliefs.
let's talk about el catalan's
Are you catalan by the way?
I don't want to assume
One of my best friend here is a catalan independentist.
yeah. Do you identify as Catalan?
(with an accent on the a)
My friend says she is Catalan, NOT Spanish.
Anyway, your project looks great!
yeah, an accent 'catalán' in Spanish, and other kind of accent 'català' in Catalan
Well, I'm Catalan and Spanish at the same time
