I visited our discord call today. And one problem that I faced, namely my poor knowledge of English, gave me the idea that we could organize English lessons for DAO members. It would be possible to establish minimum requirements for the possibility of attending these classes. I’m sure there are many people among us who have great ideas or could be helpful on calls and voice their opinions on various issues, but don’t do it because they don’t know the language.
I don’t know how much it costs, but if it’s interesting, then we can discuss how best to do it and implement it.
I think it’s fantastic, we should talk about it.
I also have this barrier, my English is very basic…
there could be at least some caption mechanism in the calls…
but actually English classes are extremely valuable, they will add a lot!
I would love to take a course
Da vinci resolve has an awesome automated captioner which works well on video footages, but that has to be processed. It only takes 2-3 minutes but still that’s a significant delay wrt adding to ongoing conversations.
The problem however then becomes about real time closed captioning.
We can easily implement this afterwards when we archive that interaction.

Great too see that are still some people helping the ones that have problem with english language, if anyone needs help im here to help too
Yes, great idea ! I see a lot of people, especially french (as me) , struggling with english. Would be really helpful
I have the same problems. You may need to add language chats. I wonder if there are bots or something in discord that translate text messages from one language to another.
Thanks for the advice. Too bad it only works in one direction. Even with a real-time voice translator, we will be able to roughly understand what is at stake. But we will not be able to conduct a full-fledged dialogue.
Thanks bro. I think your help will be useful, in general, perhaps I will first find out about the number of people who also want to speak fluent English in order to participate in discussions, and then we will already be able to roughly understand what next steps to take.
Soon there will be chatGPT extension ready for learning foreign languages, better than what apecoin dao can offer you.
Alternative thing which they just started was adding native language channels. Are there good bots that can auto translate in various languages in various directions?
I feel like more people than we realize would appreciate this. Ape coin drip for teachers is a must tho so we have to account for that.
We have some accredited English teachers wanting to create courses on our Approved Educators platform, maybe we can look at incentives and discounts for all ApeCoin holders, our platform and courses are token gated, so this can easily be implemented across various courses and academics.
I know this is well-intentioned, with English being the global language and all, but I can’t help feeling it might rub fellow non-native speakers in the wrong way. Participation in the DAO is already low due to the sheer amount of information and time needed to study them; rather than bringing up members’ English level, I think the DAO should do more to accommodate them by translating information into other major languages, providing captions, creating easy-to-understand visuals etc. Well not exactly the DAO, probably need some AIPs or incentives like Thank Ape, but you get what I mean.
Love to see ideas like this with the international community in mind though!
I still think AI summaries of ones in the final stage and also auto translate options for ones at snapshot is a good start. I know auto translate isn’t perfect but I use in various languages and for technical content it is usually 99% correct.
great idea, it was really helpfull
It would be cool for those who don’t know how to speak english, to have english lessons
I’m a huge advocate for continual education and would love to offer some help towards this. If we don’t have enough educators, I’m happy to help gather a group of us to create a curriculum as a starting point. We can also organize training sessions or provide opportunities to shadow a session before leading one yourself.
Please let me know if you need any further assistance or if you have any other questions!
Agree with NEGI here! While it could be an option for English lessons to be made available, I think its more necessary that the DAO be the one to adjust and find a way to accommodate non-English natives because they are just as much a member of the DAO as anyone else. Hopefully the right tools necessary to pull this off will be put in place!
