3: Translating our Messages and the Blog

We would like to share a great tool with you. Google Translate is pretty good, but it often misses some important grammar or meanings. There is a better translator that we recommend. It is a free app called DeepL. Just to show you what it looks like, I have copy / pasted some of this blog into the DeepL translator.

4: PLG of the Month!

For the month of May, Hope will be focusing on the Personal Learning Goal of being “Ethical”. This can be a difficult goal to understand as interpretation can vary from person to person. At Hope, we view an “Ethical” learner through the following qualities:

  • Making the “right choices” in a situation, even if no one is watching.

  • Identifying what is the most “right choice” to make in any situation.

  • Understanding why rules are in place and how they can help society.

  • Understand that different cultures have different rules and where these rules come from based on historical influence.

  • Making selfless decisions, even when this may be challenging

  • Making positive choices, even when this may be difficult.
