I was suprised by the fact that Ben was so good in using echolocation that some of his friends at first didn’t realized he was blind. Another unusual thing that surprised me was the information that his ears are no more sensitive to sound than ours. The whole documentary was extremely interesting cause I’ve never heard about human who can see the world thanks to echolocation, just like some examples of animals. I can surely agree with my friend Weronika Borucka with her opinion about the difficulty of learning echolocation, so better option could be to teach children how to move with white cane. I also can not imagine who would teach these children echolocation, a blind teacher, or some specialist, who actually isn’t blind? I don’t know.
