                                                       English as a Second Language.

Starting nursery can be a bewildering experience for many children. This is further compounded if no one else can speak their home language the only language that they know. Now, you can easily speak with the child and their parent or carer in their home language. Watch their response and see the difference this kind of valuing makes!  

Touch the PENpal to this A3 laminated chart and hear key words and phrases to use with children and parents spoken fluently in 21 different languages and English.  Easy to access and fantastically simple, this practical resource is perfect for induction and a must for any setting with EAL children.

This excellent package includes the chart, the PENpal* and all the languages.
The phrases have been tried and tested with various teachers and office administrators, for the most common terms used in the school office or in class. For example, if there is a Polish child, just touch the Polish "button" and then the phrase you you want to communicate (eg Please bring your child at 9 o'clock)will be spoken in Polish. Then touch the Lithuanian hot spot and hear the same phrase spoken in Lithuanian. 

Available languages: Albanian, Arabic, Bengali/Sylheti, Bulgarian, Cantonese, Czech, English, Farsi, French, Gujarati, Hungarian, Japanese, Lithuanian, Malayalam, Mandarin, Nepali, Panjabi, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Shona, Somali, Spanish, Swedish, Turkish and Urdu.
