Culture and the Languages We Speak

In Social Studies, we have started to learn about culture.

We have learned that culture is the way of life of a group of people. It includes traditions, language, beliefs, food, music and art.

Here are some of our ideas about Canadian culture.

Of course, we would love to hear from other blog followers from outside our class as well!

  1. Most of my family members only speak English, however my two daughters also speak French, as they attend a French-immersion school. I know quite a bit of French as well, but my daughters certainly know more than me!

    Also, Mr. Wirtanen’s father (my father in-law) was raised speaking Finnish as his parents immigranted to Canada from Finland. He has travelled back to Finland many times over the years, and he still remembers a lot of his “first language.”

  2. My family speaks English. I was in kindergarten French immersion and learned a lot of French but have forgotten most of it now.
