what we learned in english

In English we were discussing the ever growing problem of asylum seekers and boat people. Personally, I do not like the idea of asylum seekers illegally seeking refuge in Australia. From the class discussions we learned that there are legitimate asylum seekers and that we need to listen to a personal story and not just the bias of the media. We discussed the differences between migrants and refugees. Migrants are people that come over on their own will, pay to get in and have a passport. Whereas refugees do not, they are trying to escape from war and find protection.

visual text communication stuff !!!

Visual text as tools of communication.
The history of communication dates way back to prehistory. Human communication was revolutionized with speech approximately 100,000 years ago. Symbols were developed about 30,000 years ago, and writing in the past few centuries.
The first known way of communication was cave paintings these were simple pictures on rock. The oldest cave painting was found in Spain that is apparently 42000 years old.
The first alphabet emerged in ancient Egypt around 2000 BC. Their alphabet had a set of 22 hieroglyphs representing syllables that begin with a single consonant of their language.
