I am taking a class in instructional design,
As a final project, I am proposing to design instruction for participants in a meditation retreat in Burma. English is the second language, so if you don't understand Burmese, you can listen to the English translation of the lectures and have ENglsih translation for your interviews.
This can pose a problem for the participants who don't speak Burmese, and have fair to poor speaking and listening skills in English.
I have chosen to only address the spoken communication at interviews.

At this time, I am seeking confirmation that using a dictionary to construct a verbal interview response is not an effective way to communicate because of the risk of using the wrong word.

I hope to post additional questions and comments as this assignment progresses,

Thanks for your help

Fredki
