He started learning German this year at school and knows numbers, colours and some songs in German already. I thought it would be great if he could return to school and show his German teacher that he has learnt something new over the school holidays.
I also thought that because he hears the words ‘I love you’ so frequently it might make a nice change to be able to say it so it means the same but sounds different. After he learnt how to say it he asked how it was spelt so that he could write it down. After that we made a poster together that he wants to take to school to show his teacher when he goes back.
I really enjoyed this simple but fun activity that we did together. Now we can say ‘I love you’ to each other in a new way. I might teach him how to say ‘I love you’ in some other languages and that way we can learn some new things together.
