Description - Hello! by Tony Flowers
Age range 3 to 6 yearsYiasou! 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!
