One of the goals we have explored as a family is learning a foreign language so as to be able to expand our ministry. The website jw.org is a great way to learn about new languages, and the countries and people who use that language.
Each person picked a country with a different language and did research about that country and language. On our family worship evening, each then gave a presentation about what they had learned. The presentations included:
- Facts about where the country is located, the culture, unique food and animals, population, the number of publishers there,etc.
- One experience from that country. The yearbooks are a great source for this.
- A printed page from a publication in that country’s language. By using jw.org you can download and print a page in the desired language.
- Using jw.org, go to one of the articles on the site and change the language to that of the your country. Then play the the record audio on the webpage of it being read in that language.
