It’s Saturday, April 5, 2014, and time for Foreign Languages at ClickSchooling!
Age Range: 10-18 (Grades 5-12, with parental supervision)
This website is a find for those who have an interest in many languages or who want to try out different languages – in an effort to figure out which one they would like to study in more depth.
The only drawback is that this is a commercial site, so the pop-up advertisements are a real nuisance. However, just close them out and scroll down the home page until you see “Follow the 2 Steps Below.” Enter the language you speak, and then click on a flag of a country with the language you want to speak – you’ll find everything from Afrikaans to Zulu here.
Once you click on a flag, a new page opens with a menu that offers you a selection of vocabulary lessons. It includes:
Use the radio buttons to select a topic, click submit, and a new page opens with a vocabulary list of words and some short phrases. Click on the words or phrases and you can hear them pronounced. Once you’ve learned the words, take a quick quiz, located on the same page, to see how much you remember.
Again, this is a great way to get some exposure to another language – or to learn some quick words and phrases that might help you get by if you plan to visit a foreign country. Kids may just be fascinated to find out how to say “I do not understand,” in over 60 languages.
