On Friday nights I’ve been teaching English to some people in my church. Many people here want to learn English, so this is a way to be a blessing to them. For the advanced class, part of the time we talk through Bible stories, and last Friday was the Tower of Babel. As I was explaining it, I wanted an illustration so that they could understand well. I called up 4 of the students and told them to talk to each other, like they were working together on a building project. Then I told them each to speak a different language (Fulani, Jula, French, and English) and try to communicate as if they didn’t understand the other ones. It was great! And it was so fun since they each had a different language they could speak well. I could have probably added another few people and they still would have been conversant in different languages. In the US, we’d just have one person say, “Hola. Como estas?” It is handy to be in a society that is so multi-lingual sometimes!
