My Global Village
The Global Village is what I call EARTH, but some people that are apart of are global village might call it something else like…Terre, Jorden, Erde, etc. A global village has many different kinds of languages, culture and religions. Are Global Village has things in common and some things that make us different. I’m going to talk about how my global village works.
Lots of my ancestors come from different places like Africa, Jamaica, and Spain. When we went to the Dominican Republic we met lots of people who spoke Spanish. They barely knew any English, but they could talk to us. Some of my family members live in different countries. My cousin and my aunt live in Japan. Another one of my aunts lives in Guatemala.
Lots of my family, friends and I speak different languages. Those languages are Spanish, French, Portuguese, Japanese, German, and Chinese. Every single language is unique. So there are lots of different kinds of languages that my family, friends, and I speak.
People in my global village have all different kinds of education and they go to different types of schools. I go to a private school. My friend goes to a boarding school, and my neighbors go to a home school. My parents went to a public school when they were younger.
So I hope you enjoyed learning about my global village. I bet there’s a whole lot more things about me that I don’t even know about. Sharing your way of life is important. Teach other people about you. Maybe you could do some research on your global village!!
