Lecture Field: Digital Innovation & Entrepreneurship School

Lecture Name: DIY Language


How does English create a question, and how is that different than in Turkish, French, or Mandarin? How do Chinese pronouns differ from German and Spanish pronouns? If you were going to make a language yourself, what system for questions and pronouns would you use? Would the system you create be more logical than natural languages? Would it be easier to learn? And would it function just as well as any other language to make plans with friends, to describe a situation, or to solve a problem?

In DIY - Do It Yourself - Language, you are introduced to the world of constructed languages. Whether just for fun or to create a fantasy world for a novel or movie, making your own language will open your eyes to just how incredible language really is.

Certificate: At the end of the training, the certificate of success approved by NUN Schools will be sent to the participants by e-mail.
