Zoom Game: Language Friends/Fake Friends
Presenter: ESL Students - Jessica Pardoe
When you are learning a new language, a cognate is an easy word to remember because it looks and/or sounds like and has the same meaning as a language you already know. These words are our "friends" because they are easy to learn and remember. However, many false cognates exist as well. We call these words "fake friends" because they look and/or sound like a word in a language we already know but actually mean something different in this language. Do you think you can tell the difference between the two? Please join multilingual SRJC students in an interactive language game where you try to guess the English meaning of cognates and false cognates from other languages.
