Holiday Blogging - Summer Learning Journey Bonus Activity

Bonus Activity
Translate the following five basic travel phrases into Spanish, German, Malaysian, Japanese, Arabic or Afrikaans. Use the Google Translate website to do the translations.

The country that I chose was Germany because it is another favorite country of mine:
Good Morning: Guten Morgen
Good Night: Gute Nacht
Hello: Hallo
Thank you: Danke
When is the next bus: Wann fährt der nächste Bus
Do you speak English: Sprichst du Englisch


  1. Good morning Amelia!

    Wow, I can't believe that you are already on the second week of activities for the Summer Learning Journey programme. That is excellent progress!

    I am also really impressed to see that you were able to find the Google translate site and translate all five travel phrases into German. Way to go! If I was going to Germany I would definitely need to bring my computer or phone with me so that I could use Google translate all the time! It is so helpful, isn't it?

    Although we have been able to translate the five sentences above, I know that there are still many more important phrases that we would need to learn before we went to Germany. Can you think of any other sentences, words or phrases that we might need to learn before we travelled overseas?

    Personally, I would also like to know how to say, "Can you please help me?" and "How much does this item cost?"

    What would you like to learn how to say?

    Keep up the great work, Amelia. You are flying through these activities :)


    1. Kia ora Rachel

      Thanks for the comment. I've been loving every minute and second doing the amazing activity's. I would also need to bring a computer and a phone if I was going to some place like Germany. What I would like to learn what to say is "Where is the toilet?" and "Can you please help me mostly haha! Thanks for stopping by.


  2. Kia ora Amelia,

    You are really charging through these challenges and activities aren't you! I am also excited about your progress! Just remember to take some time for yourself to have a bit of fun and relax. At the moment I like reading a comic about Jazz, it's pretty cool. Are you reading any books at the moment too?

    Like Rachel I also want to know how to say "How much does it cost?" but I also want to know how to say "Are you okay?" and "Where is the toilet?" haha!

    I hope you're enjoying the Summer Learning Journey,

    Kia kaha,
