Do you need to communicate with children and / or parents with very limited understanding of English? This fantastic Key Phrases Chart, which has been designed for use in nurseries, playgroups and schools, will help you to be understood with ease.
Touch a TalkingPEN to this A3 double-sided laminated chart and hear popular key words and phrases spoken fluently in 25 different languages, including English. Easy to access and fantastically simple, this practical resource is perfect for induction and a must for any setting with EAL children.
Each of the included phrases have been tried and tested with various teachers and other school staff, such as 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 hotspot and hear the same phrase spoken in Lithuanian.
The included languages are 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. Switch between languages instantly! Simply touch the language that you want to hear with TalkingPEN and then touch any phrase.
