Statement of Inquiry
The connection between the mother tongue and other languages enables people to develop skills and knowledge in language and acquire new languages.
I find english as my mother tongue helpful in french. Lots of words in french are similar to words in english making it easier.
How can I use my knowledge of English to learn French? How can I introduce myself in French?
I can use english words that sound like french words and use them. For example, I know portrait de famille sounds like portrait of the family. Another example is, lettre in french means letter in english.
How are languages linked to one another?
Languages are linked because some languages are based of other. Like lots of European languages are based of Latin.
Does learning a new language make my mother tongue stronger?
With pronunciation and grammar french and english is similar. This will help me say words in french. Also, in french there is commas and most of the same punctuation in english.

In what ways did you create a successful VR video promo?
I created a successful VR video promo because I had my video represent effort which is what my logo was about. I showed different flags of countries to show globally everyone should give their best effort. The timing was good so I wasn’t there for too long closing the Ricoh Theta or starting the recording. Viewers said that it was too long because my video was 24 seconds when it was supposed to be 15. Then, I changed my video to around 15 seconds making it around the time you’re supposed to have your video last for.
What improvements would you make to you VR video promo?
My video could have been wider to show more than just flags. This will give viewers impressions that there is more to giving it all rather than showing flags. Also, my logo could have been placed better. I put it behind the main stairwell on the 10th floor. This just covered something that looked interesting relating to the video. But, because of my logo that small area looks a bit odd.
