鈥淚 wanted to choose text that would pique the interest of the people who view it. The issues that are discussed within the text have to do with relationships, and I feel many students can relate to that. I also hope students will interact with each other when translating some of the languages they are unfamiliar with.鈥 ~Jim Sanborn
