Boy Scout Materials Now in 34 Languages

Postby milominderbinder2 » Wed Dec 17, 2008 11:39 pm

Do you have families in your Troop who don't speak English? How do you help them? The Scout Handbook is in Spanish but what about all of the other materials? What about all of the other languages?

Now you have a solution!

Just click "More languages" to view and print any page at meritbadge.org in dozens of languages. You can print the requirements for a merit badge in Spanish or the Worksheet in Vietnamese. You can print the Camping Checklist in Tagalog for Filipino parents.

Print this page in their language to show them how:

Please forward this to other leaders in your Troop and council who may have Scouts who speak other languages.

Happy Holidays!

My understanding is that we have 34 different languages available since what is explained in plain english in our posts doesn't seen to sink in, so we need to see if another tongue makes it clear. :lol:

I tried to follow the given link and all I get is:
There is currently no text in this page, you can search for this page title in other pages or edit this page.


Does this mean that the 34 languages is just a dream and they don't really exist?

Go to the main page of Dot.org and there is a language box on the left. If you do not want spanish click on more languages
