Product description

A global language-learning journey all the way from Arabic to Zulu. Did you know that almost 7000 languages are spoken around the globe? Now children can find out all about them in a book packed with language facts and phrases. Colourful sections highlight 21 specific languages – Spanish, French, Mandarin, Russian, Welsh, Bengali, Swahili and more – using maps and flags to show where they are spoken. There’s a short history of each and a pronunciation guide, plus simple vocabulary and dialogues to learn. Morse code, sign language and whale song are covered, along with other non-verbal languages. Finally, kids learn to say goodbye in 40 different tongues.
