One of my dad’s friends is making an underwater goggle that can record, so when you dive, it records first-person footage. He wanted to make a video promoting at a crowdfunding event called Indiegogo. He wanted to make the video in English but he wasn’t good at it, so he reached out to me for help. He sent me a rough script that the video was going to be based on, and I would re-write and polish it a bit.
Test of my skills
One of the main problems with the script was grammar, I am pretty confident in my skills, and quickly fixed all of the issues that stand out, but there were a lot of details that I wasn’t sure about. And I began researching and learning. Then I realized that it isn’t just the grammar that could be fixed, but the phrasing as well. After a few iterations, I was finally happy.
The video also had a time limit, so we had to make sure the script wasn’t too long. I tried reading the script at a fast speed, but it was still way too long. But after a bit of work, it was all done.
Textbooks and exercises aren’t the only way to improve, these little jobs and projects like this can provide an even greater learning experience.\
