can we discuss jane and belle’s different teaching techniques
jane is teaching tarzan how to read with basic children’s books:
“see jane run.”
while belle on the other hand decides that the first thing beast should learn how to read is
shakespeare’s romeo and juliet
Belle’s having none of your uncultured shit.
I heartily disagree with the sentiment that Belle is a better teacher than Jane. Tarzan had no knowledge of regular human language, spoken or written. The Beast never learned how to read fully, as it is hinted he can recognize some letters. Top top it off the Beast can speak fluently as well, Tarzan could speak Gorilla. Not exactly an equal playing field. Jane had to start simple so that the sounds of the language could be familiar first.
