Learning one's own native language can be difficult at times, not to mention trying to adopt a second or third language as well, but if more people created texts like Silenc by Kenneth Aleksander Robertsen, it could potentially be a lot easier. It basically highlights all the silent letters in a selection of Hans Christian Andersen stories to help people grasp the words' phonetic properties.

Created in collaboration with Momo Miyazaki and Manas Karambelkar for their Data Visualization course at the Copenhagen Institute of Interaction Design, Silenc by Kenneth Aleksander Robertsen allows these silent letters to disappear with the help of a red screen. Available in translations of Danish, French and English, the books could easily be adopted by schools to better teach children and adults how to pronounce common words.
