This Badge has 5 options of which 5 must be completed
Hello & Goodbye
Instructions:
• Photocopy sufficient worksheet (see overleaf) Ensure that every girl can pair up with someone else. If you don’t have 18 participants, leave one or 2 of the languages out. If you have a large group of girls give out extra cards in 1 or 2 of the languages so that girls will end up in groups of 3.
• Cut up to make Country phrases card (9 in total)
• Give each Guide a phrase card
• They must match up with girls who are speaking in the same language as them
• In order to do this the girls, need to go around the room and say “hello” and “goodbye” in the language they have on their card and find their partner/group

Discuss other types of greetings without words e.g. a kiss, handshake.
• If there are any girls from other countries at the meeting - ask them to say hello in their language.

NOTE TO LEADER:
• Explain the game by looking at English first. “Hello” literally means ‘good day’ or ‘have a good day’ or ‘God’s day’. Hello evolved from hail in old English which evolved from heill from the Norse language which meant health. Goodbye evolved from ‘God be with you’.
