In our school we have children who speak several other languages apart from English.These are Bengali, Nepalese, Chinese, Shona,Tapalog, Filipino and Polish.
Mrs Barney and Ms Callow have attended some Nepelese speaking classes. They found it very hard to learn. Here are a couple of phrases that they learnt.
Mero nam Srimati Barney ho. Tapai ko nam ke ho?
Tapai lai kasto cha? Ma lai ramro cha dhanyabad.
Mrs Barney does some extra learning with some of the EAL children some afternoons each week to help them understand spoken English a little easier.
