How to make the click sounds in Xhosa

Learn to speak a little like a person from Africa - try to learn how to make Xhosa clicks yourself - can you do it?

Another thing to try - can you write an Anansi story to explain how something happens? Think of something that is hard to explain, like why the sky is blue, or how computers work, and then write an Anansi story about it.

Draw a map of Africa that shows which languages people speak in which places. There are dozens of different languages spoken in Africa!
