番組 Transcript

It’s amazing, you know. It’s like when we were the first time, we were teaching how to use a computer, and for me I remember like more than 10 years ago, you know, when I learned computer for the first time, it took so long time, because I used pen and paper. I wrote down what can I do, which button should I click on and everything.

But they don’t have any papers in Zambia very much. They use their head. We put all memory into our mobile phones, computer and papers, right?, in our rich world. In Africa they don’t have those means. You know. So they put everything in the heads. So they are very quick learners. Amazing.

So maybe if we learn EXCEL and it takes 2 weeks. They learn it 2 days. It’s unbelievable chance, I think, if Africans, Zambians get the real infrastructure for learning, something very magical will came out from Africa, I think. Fantastic! I was very impressed by that. They learn things very quickly. Unbelievably quickly.

(Q)I heard that they could remember the number of telephone.

Telephone number. Yeah! Easily they remember a lot of telephone numbers. And I mean that they have nothing to write it down also. I mean what you are doing situation, when you have to walk maybe 10 km, you have one or two or three telephone numbers to keep in mind, you know. You have to learn how to keep them in your mind. You have no alternatives.

So that is a treasure, I think, that we have forgotten about that. We have to learn more about in our countries. We have forgotten about our memory, right?
