Language Bridge

Although most people refer to the different languages spoken across nations as a communication barrier, our team saw the cultural differences between ourselves and the community as an opportunity. Taking the time to learn a few words in the community’s first language can go a long way. Likewise, in our experience, the community members enjoyed learning other languages that we spoke. Exchanging cultures through language got the different groups learning and laughing together, and it is a simple way to show appreciation for their culture and express our desire to work together.
