International Translation Day #ITD2020

 In honor of International Translation Day, take a look at the UW Language Learning Center's site.  I'm intrigued by the streaming video options, particularly SCOLA, a non-profit educational organization that receives and re-transmits television and radio programming from around the world in native languages.

In the section for on-demand video, you can search by language and by genre. Just for fun, I tuned in to a children's program in Farsi. I don't know any Farsi, but it was interesting to see some cute Iranian kids, puppets, a woman dressed up in colorful robes, and a cartoon. Of course, if you know another language (or are learning it), these videos would be even more interesting!

Google Translate tells me the title means "Children of Iran."
