Awesome idea! I love the thought of highlighting a country each week and learning a little about each. Let's see....that's 11 countries right? So for our trip out in December, I'll need to start in September, or maybe even August. Times well with the start of the new school year. I can feel the wheels turning already

WELCOME to the DIS Merija3!!!

KSgirl...love that idea!I homeschooled Erich for kindergarten and we did countries during the Olympics that year.We had dinners to go along with what country we were doing that week.Erich is really into science and nature so he found animals from whatever country we were studying...oh and of course a Disney character from there too!

Don't forget "saluton", esperanto for "hello". It's the language of the future, you know.

Talking

Great idea!

I'll speak to SCANNE about it, who is our musical theatre teacher who'll be taking our 8th grade musical theatre class to sing with Mickey in February ~I'm going too!~

When you post to a thread it "bumps" it back to the top of the board.:D


But I have a few posts "stuck" up here so they're at the top all the time!

What a great idea, thanks!

When we told the kids we were going to WDW, my 8yo begged us to go to Epcot. He had just finished studying Japan and already knows how to say hello and good-bye and can't wait to say them to someone who understands. Now both my boys can learn these and be able to say "hi"!

i got my info from www.travlang.com/languages

This is just another reminder of my disreputable lifestyle. Hello, goodbye, thank you . . . these are all valuable things to know in other languages.

But on my last visit to EPCOT, I did a world beer tour with one of my business associates, and we made it our mission to learn how to say "beer" in every language. We succeeded, at least temporarily. I'm absolutely sure that as we cheerfully walked (some might say "staggered") back to the Boardwalk after completing our mission in Canada, I knew how to ask for a beer in Spanish, Norwegian, Chinese, German, Swahili, Japanese, Italian, Morroccan, and French.

By the next morning, however, for some reason I couldn't remember most of them. Go figure.
