2 Languages and the work environment
Learning languages and finding out about other countries can be fun, as well as useful, and this unit is an introduction to the differences in culture and language about which we all need to be aware.

Une blague: zeggen waar je pijn hebt
Op het einde van deze les kun je zeggen waar je pijn hebt. Je koppelt eerst illustraties aan woorden, om de woordenschat te verwerven. Daarna koppel je namen aan lichaamsdelen.
