On this sunny morning the children got chilly and investigated languages spoken in the Antarctic…….’What!’, I heard you say….…… yes, the Antarctic!

In Antarctica today you’ll find an enourmous number of languages being spoken – a result of the wide range of researchers who visit the icy continent.  Seven countries have staked a claim on parts of Antarctica and thirty countries have research stations there making for a hotbed of languages and cultures!

Children also learned something new in English – The prefix ‘ant-‘ comes from ‘anti-‘ meaning the ‘opposite of the Arctic’.
