Objective: To introduce the idea of languages from around the world to learners so they begin to hear and use greetings in languages other than their own.

This is a good start to a language project as it gives pupils a taste of different languages. Each language is represented by the country's flag.

You can hear how to greet someone in each language by selecting the flag in the Whiteboard Activity section below. Ask the learners to repeat.

Once the learners are comfortable with several of the greetings, point to flags and ask learners to say the greeting without hearing it first.

Extension: Ask learners what other languages they know and whether they can say hello.
