African Language Presentation
|Submitter Email:||click here to access email|
The Albuquerque Biopark recently opened a new exhibit with African animals,
and our Education curator suggested we think out of the box when developing
educational discovery stations. He suggested a discussion of African
language families (!!!! as if we have 20 years with zoo visitors !!!!!).
Instead, I am
attempting to put together an explanation of the complexity of the clicking
sounds used in some African languages, and your site has been a great help.
Can anyone tell me where I can find recordings of African children's songs?
At this point, I'm not picky about language - as long as they are
sub-Saharan African, rather than European languages. I'd like to attempt
to teach children a simple song, and show them pictures of people (and then
the animals) that live where that song is sung.
