How Children Play Who Don’t Speak the Same Language

Close to our home, there is a small community comprised of project employees, wildlife scouts and their families. It’s just outside the reserve’s fence and if it weren’t for the danger of elephant and buffalo, we could walk to it. Since we can’t walk and I don’t have a car, it may as well be miles away. Today, my husband had to go into the workshop right next to the community and we decided to tag along. It turned out to be even more fun than we anticipated. We found a group of kids hanging out on the road near the workshop and discovered what happens when you put a couple of kids who speak very little Chichewa into a group of kids that speak about the same amount of English.
