Curiosity invites another curiosity

Hina was watching a YouTube video about where the name “Cambodia” came from. She became curious about Cambodia since she has met many people who speak Khmer only these days.

Cambodian people are very friendly to children and they talk to Hina like their child. She wonders what they are talking about and at the same time she became interested in the country, Cambodia.

Her first language is currently English because many people around her including the Japanese speak English. But after she joined the event for the Japanese community in Cambodia, she started to learn Japanese with an app by herself.

When Hina saw me going to a vegan restaurant quite often, she learned about what vegan is.

After Hina met LGBTQ people, she started to watch videos which talk about the topic from a variety of aspects.

When she searches things on YouTube, she watches several videos about the topic, which helps her to know more with different aspects.

When Hina and I were reading a book together, she raised another case on YouTube which also satisfies the conditions. I was amazed that she could add more to the book.

She is always curious and she often asks questions. I try to listen to her questions and either I answer it or I bring it to a discussion.
