Help players learn new languages through Minecraft
I think Minecraft would be great help for those attempting to learn a second language. Trouble is, languages are very different in how they are written- how will a native Arabic speaker ever understand Chinese, or a Korean speaker Russian, if they have no way of understanding what the characters say? I propose that there be an option where, either underneath or alongside the original characters, there be a pronunciation guide in the player's native language. (Ex. Alongside 鱼 for "fish" in Chinese, it would be "yú".) Additionally, perhaps there could a voice over that played when players pressed a certain button (default key could be Z, if it doesn't already serve a function). Whatever you think would work best- I'd just love to use Minecraft to help me understand the wider world!
