Purpose
Diversity is the ingredient that makes the world the rich environment that it is. In this diverse society there is the meshing of cultures, customs and languages which creates a rich portrait that can only be created by God. Language is a tool that is used to share ideas and communicate. Learning a different language is the process of equipping oneself with the key needed to unlock the door of communication with those who speak other languages. The technology available in the 21st century makes it easy to live a comfortable life without learning a new language. Children find that it is a challenge because in their eyes there seems to be no relevance to their daily lives. The Bible says, “Train up a child in the way that he should go and when he is old, he will not depart from it.” Teaching children a different language is teaching them to accept their differences. Whether we are red, yellow, black, or white we are all God’s children. Exposing children to a different language early in their lives will broaden their horizons and allow them to communicate with their brothers and sisters and share God’s world together. If we teach the children early to accept each other and realize that although they may live in different places they still have the same needs and learn the same things. The role of educators is to equip students with all of the necessary tools needed to survive in this world. Learning to speak another language is difficult but not the lessons in this unit. This unit provides an easy introduction to the French language. The purpose of this unit is to enable teachers who are not familiar with the French language to learn and to teach their students in a fun and engaging way. The activities provided are easy to accomplish. They make learning a new and different language interesting and fun. Have fun as you discover how to speak one of the most beautiful languages in the world. If there are challenges on the way, remember God tells us in his word “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”
