I am looking for an exceptionally talented writer for our language learning platform startup.
For this assignment, I need to write 100 most frequently used phrases that would be universal for any language and culture.
They will be used for complete beginners to learn a foreign language, and therefore should roughly follow the progression commonly found in text books, starting with "hello my name is" "what is your name" "where are you from" and so on. The consequent focus should be on the sentences that are commonly encountered over and over in everyday speech.
These phrases need to be written in English, and will consequently be translated to Chinese, Spanish, German, Japanese, French, Arabic, Portuguese, Russian, Korean and American Sign Language.
The translation is not a part of this assignment but please feel free to volunteer if you qualify.
For this job you will need to cross-reference word frequency lists such as these:
To qualify for this assignment, you would need to be an exceptionally enthusiastic person whose primary motivation is having fun with words and being a part of something new and cool.
So if you are a writer, polyglot, linguist, language teacher, translator and an all around incredibly talented person, hit me back!
P.S. The next assignment will be 500 phrases, and so on.
