      Just out! ‘The Girl Who Learned All The Languages Of The World.’ Inspire your students to learn and share languages – perhaps a class reader?

       

      ‘The girl who learned all the languages of the world’

      Promote the love of learning languages through this fantastic book by The Emma Press – ‘The Girl who Learned all the Languages of the World’. A story that poignantly captures the experience of a young girl, Lela, at the dinner table, which suddenly awakens within her a desire to learn all the languages of the world.   Read the book to find out how languages open up her world?  A fantastic class read, which all children will be able to relate to.

      The book provides a fantastic opportunity to introduce words in a variety of different languages – a great way of valuing the multilingual skills of your children, as well as, developing an understanding and awareness of the similarities and differences between languages.  It will enable children who speak other language to feel valued and to develop confidence to share their languages more openly.

      By the end of the book all children will have received exposure to a range of words in Latvian, French, Finnish, German, Spanish, Italian, Estonian, Swedish, Slovenian, Dutch, Maltese and Russian.  An ideal opportunity to add to the repertoire of this book by encouraging children to add to the words in their own languages.

      Can also be read to younger learners or independent reading for children in Y2 and lower KS2. This delightful book will develop curiosity in all children to want to learn new languages opening up new experiences and opportunities just as it does for Lela.
