I was wondering if anybody knew of any websites about teaching foreign languages to toddlers or small children or knew anything about it.
I'm currently working as aupair in France and I'. trying to teach the kids a little German. They seem to take it quite well (they're especially bright when it comes to picking up the words they're not supposed to learn :P), but I would still like to do a little more than to just talk to them in German, like games (ones I could make myself). They're two and three and a half years old. The baby is six month old, but with him I'm just counting on the fact that talking to him a lot will do the trick.
So, does anybody know of any playful tricks to teach German to my French kids?
Hey guys, I was looking for a translation for 'cobbler' or 'shoemaker' in ancient greek or latin.
however, if the above words have a cool translation in a language you know, feel free to share.
EDIT: if anyone knows what the word would be in Hebrew or Yiddish, id like to know that too! :D
Hey fellow linguists and linguaphiles,
A little off topic but
Ever heard any music explicitly about linguistics or being a linguist? Or language or IPA or anything in any field? I'd love some artists or song titles or links to mp3s... Even if they're dumb songs -- no, especially.
I recently got hired for a job at McDonalds and I really needed the money, so I plan on staying here for a while. The problem is, I'll be the only crew member who isn't fluent in Spanish, and the manager's English is very hard to understand and more on the Spanglish side. The other crew members all communicate to each other in Spanish as well, and I'm a bit worried I might have a hard time at work.
Is anyone generous enough to offer me some fast-food-related phrases to try and remember for work?
