@arefgee Well, it's not a language, just a different writing system. Same words, but different letters. I don't know if that makes it easier, or harder.
@Mayana Yeah, I understand. That's what I meant. Since it's laid out differently, it feels new.
I'm struggling right now to learn to read and write a language I have always spoken; and the alphabet feels completely new to me.
@arefgee Well, it's actually very simple. Here, let me help:
A has 1 dot.
B has 2 dots.
C also has 2 dots.
D has 3.
E has 2.
Do you get it yet? 😇
But less jokingly, I can definitely understand how this would be hard to someone learning it when older. Especially since I assume you are learning it from pictures you see on the internet, not actually having it there in front of you -- while a lot of sighted people learn to read it that way, braille is not actually meant to be read by looking at it. 🙂
