What does it feel like to have a learning difficulty?

Watch this four minute video that was prepared in the framework of the Dystefl project and follow the steps to complete the task.

The pace of the video is deliberately fast and for the original experience, you should not pause it. If you find the task very difficult though, you might want to give yourself more time.

Note down how the activity made you feel and why you felt like that.

Make a list of the strategies you used to accomplish it.

Consider what this experience tells you about how students with learning difficulties might feel when facing the task of learning another language.
