My daughter Aya is 13 months old and I'm desperate for her to gain some exposure to Arabic - I try my best to speak to her solely in Arabic but it is a second language for me and my husband doesn't speak it at all so I'm looking for other ways to help her acquire it. I would love to bring her along to a playgroup as all the arabic schools I've found don't seem to cater to under 4s. We live in SW9 but I'd go anywhere in London!
Did you get your playgroup up and running? Please post details if so
Good, so we have 4 kids already I don't have any CDs but I have found some nice videos and songs on you tube. Do you know anybody who could run the playgroup? we could get a quote from a tutor, but it requires a certain type of person to make it fun for the kids... I know of a 16year old Iraqi girl, the daughter of a friend, who might be willing to give it a go... then we would have to hire a room, I guess. The more central the more likely we are to find more people.
We are looking for an Arabic Saturday school that is NOT teaching the Quran. I have fond only two in London, the one in Ealing and the one in Portobello road... Both are a bit of a trek from North London. Any thing else closer to us? Someone told me about one in Paddington or Swiss cottage but i can't find anything about it on the web.
