Title: Communciating in Arabic at Home?
Post by: Ayesha Nicole on March 31, 2015, 05:12:20 PM
as salaamu 'alaikum!

As I am learning Arabic, I am frustrated! because there are no materials for parents learning a language to teach to their child!  Nor are there any phrasebooks or common dialogues that mothers/parents use with their children at home.  

I discovered this book:

Family Language Learning
Learn Another Language, Raise Bilingual Children
Author: Christine Jernigan

http://www.multilingual-matters.com/display.asp?K=9781783092802


and need some help, please!, for translating common exchanges in English to Arabic.  I also began creating a 'phrasebook' as a way to get started:

and decided to switch to google docs spreadsheet in order to have MSA and different dialects, etc.  As I make phrase cards, soundclips can be embedded and/or use http://www.chirbit.com/.

We can then make categories and playlists, and .ppts based on these 'conversations'. 
  
I also created a facebook page, if any native Arabic speakers want and are able to help me, please?:

Thank you!

Yes I said communication between a mother or a family with a son of an Arab-language Risah reasons for not learning

Thank you Ayesha
