USAGE: Teaching Children

I've just come across a knotty problem. How would your languages say something like
"she teaches languages to children"? Most of mine would probably use a double
accusative, or maybe put "children" in the dative and "languages" in the
accusative. This would then mean that "she teaches children" would also use the
dative for "children".

Aredos example:

dinguatans felgevos hemeliat.
languages-acc children-dat teach-3s.


Bengesko niamso.
Cursed German.
