Summary
Age range 3 to 6 years Yiasou! That's hello in Greek! Or would you like to speak Chinese? What about Italian or Korean? Murinhpatha or Kaurna? Meet 12 Australian friends who can speak different languages. They tell us how to count from 1 to 10, say hello and goodbye and lots of other words in their languages about play, food, hobbies and clothes. Once we've said hello, we can watch Emiko playing the Japanese drum and Pilinh performing an Aboriginal dance. We can see how to make gnocchi with Sophia and flat bread with Amal. This book is an introduction to 12 languages spoken most frequently in Australian homes, plus three Indigenous languages.The languages are: Chinese, Greek, Indonesian, Italian, Japanese, Kala Lagaw Ya, Kaurna, Korean, Lebanese Arabic, Murrinhpatha, Thai and Vietnamese. Illustrated in a cartoon style, the pictures add humour and fun to language learning. Each language and culture is introduced by a child character - and you might spot a koala or two ...Selamat tinggal! That's goodbye in Indonesian!
