Arabic Immersion for Babies and Toddlers - Arabic Playgroup?

(12 Posts)

I saw an old post and it was exactly the type of group I wanted to join.. Anyone interesting in joining an Arabic playgroup? We can start by just speaking in Arabic around the babies, and from there we can start including songs and games..

Surely there are parents out there that want their toddlers and/or pre-schoolers to get regular, immersion-style exposure to Arabic in a non-religious setting?

I have a 5 month old baby and I am quite worried he will not speak my language growing up in London.

I would be very interested in getting together with other parents for a regular Arabic-only playgroup, somewhere central where everyone can easily access. All kids under five welcome.

Im Sudanese and grew up in Egypt and also lived in quite accustomed to a variety of Arabic accents.

Do let me know if this is something you would be interested in.

Ahlan wa sahlan Nehal

I'd love to meet up so my toddler can be around Arabic speakers like yourself. My husband doesn't speak Arabic so it's only at my mums when there is some exposure although not a lot.

I'm Somali myself and speak mainly Gulf accents with some Shami as well at times. I can also do Egyptian.

Somewhere central sounds good - my daughter is 17 months old and I'm due in Oct as well in sha Allah.

Hi Nehal,
I'd be very interested in doing an Arabic Speaking playgroup. Have you managed to do one or find one? Do you live in London? If so lets meet up and chat about this. I'm also Sudanese and keen for my 23 month old boy to learn Arabic.

Hi Sarah,
Just read your message and was wondering if you had found an Arabic playgroup?

Welcome Reem. I still didn't find a playgroup. Maybe we can create our own. What do the other moms in this thread think?
