Want to try writing or speaking to your sponsored child in his or her language? You might wonder, “How do I even start?” If your child lives in Latin America, you could try brushing up on your high school Spanish. But what if your child speaks Tagalog or Nyanja? How does one say “Hello” in India? We’re just guessing, but your old textbooks probably can’t help you out there.
So we asked CI kids across the globe to teach us common phrases in their native tongues. Consider dropping a few into the next letter you write your child. Even better, practice them for an in-person visit!
