Discord Bot to Teach Chinese

Project Title:

Discord Bot to Teach Chinese

Problem Statement: What is the problem you will solve?

The problem is that to pass the HSK 1 written exam, you need to memorise a lot of chinese characters and know their english translations. When trying this with traditional methods like writing them out a lot of times, I often get bored or distracted. This bot will turn learning into a game or quiz. Some of the stretch

Goals: What are you aiming to accomplish?

To pass my HSK 1 exam and complete all of my stretch goals for this bot.

Impact: What impact will this project have?

I will present this project to the rest of my year which means that a lot of people will see how easy it is to host on Akash, even for a beginner such as myself. It will also help people who want to learn Chinese and like me are preparing for a HSK 1 written exam. Also if I get funding, I will put any leftover funding to stake back to Akash validators.

Budget: How much funding will this require?


Timeline: What is the timeline for accomplishing this task?

The university deadline is in June 2022. However, I will still work on the task once this deadline has been met and I have graduated. I want to expand the bot to be a general quiz bot that can help students revise for any subject.

Team: Are you looking for additional team members?

No, my university requires me to do this project individually.

Reporting: How will you report your progress to the community (e.g. weekly calls, reports)?

All of my code is available on my GitHub (GitHub - Jimbok21/DiscordBot: 3rd Year Project). I have bi-weekly progress reports with my university mentor that I could also upload online. I will write a full progress report in June when I hit my deadline. It will include future plans for the project and what I have accomplished so far.

Design: Do you have any mock ups or screenshots?
