Farida receives a postcard from her uncle. He is sending a friend to visit her. She wonders who the friend might be and what they can do together. Will Farida be happy to meet her? The main concepts that are carried throughout the telling and teaching of the story include greetings and identifying similarities and differences. Additional concepts include looking at presumptions, verbs and games at school. The story can be used as a starting point to discuss greetings (such as how one greets another at different times of the day) and look at formal and informal greetings. The learners can include greetings in their home language. One can also look at similarities and differences between people, languages and classrooms.
