That special time of year is coming, as is the time to purchase Hanukkah and Christmas presents. For some, this is fun and easy, and they enjoy it, overall. For others, it can be frustrating trying to figure out what people might want, need, or like. Fortunately, we can make it a little easier for some.
If you know someone who loves a foreign language, is learning a new language, teaches language, or loves foreign films, then we have plenty for you to choose from:
Foreign Films: Movies are almost always a good idea. Most of us love movies, and foreign films give us an opportunity to experience different cultures and languages, all with the thrill of great storytelling. There is a multitude of great, awarding-winning foreign films for all ages. The gift of foreign language pleases the language lover, the movie buff, or a combination of both.
Teaching Materials: Do you know a foreign language teacher? Find something that may help them shake up their teaching routine. There are plenty of board games, novels, non-fiction texts, audio cds, films, and beyond that a creative teacher can use to educate and inspire.
Learn-at-Home Materials: Is someone you know learning a new language? Or, perhaps they’ve expressed a desire to do so. Get them started, or help them on their journey. Give them a book or software program to get them started. Give audio tapes, music, or movies to help them enjoy their learning process.
Great Literature: For the book lover with a knowledge of a foreign language, or someone who’s learning, try a classic novel in the original foreign language. For example, someone learning French might like to aspire to read Victor Hugo in the original French, or a Spanish-learner might like to read Don Quixote.
There is a myriad of gift possibilities this Hanukkah and Christmas at World of Reading. If you have questions, we can help, too and help recommend the perfect gift. Come check us out and give the gift of foreign language.
