An unrelated kindergarten story -
The kinder and I are out for a walk and chance upon a new addition to the local petting zoo, llamas.
That’s cool, everyone loves llama, so we stop to look at them for a little bit. The kids initial excitement wains when the llama wander off and no amount of ‘Come here llama’ will return them.
"Miss K! Why is the llama not listening to me?"
'I'm not sure the llama understands what you are asking it, llama's don't speak English.'
"…AH! THEY SPEAK SLOVAK"
'Llama are not originally from Slovakia, they are from South America, like child z's mummy, so I don't think they speak Slovak either.'
The child quickly beckons child z over and insists she talks to the llamas. Within a few minutes all of the children are shouting “Hola” into a field of llamas.
