Friends! At the start of 2019, my 6 year old and I started a Hindi (Hindustani) language FUN podcast of made-up stories. We "YES AND" each other and build crazy unexpected stories! Getting great responses from families so far.
Sharing here for families that have kids interested in fun, CREATIVE and IMAGINATIVE storytelling while learning HINDI.
Deepti, this is a wonderful idea, the sort of creative approach for promoting language exposure and use that can be both very effective and very enjoyable--for both the child and the parent. You and your son get a standing ovation for your creativity and drive!
Let me also share, for everyone, a link that describes an earlier creative project pursued by Deepti and her son. It was another winning idea!
Adam Beck, the founder of Bilingual Monkeys and The Bilingual Zoo, is the author of "Maximize Your Child's Bilingual Ability"; "Bilingual Success Stories Around the World"; "I WANT TO BE BILINGUAL!"; "28 Bilingual English-Spanish Fairy Tales & Fables"; the fun-filled wordless picture book "Bearded Dragon, Home Alone"; and the award-winning humorous novel "How I Lost My Ear".
Thanks a million, Amy!! So thoughtful, otherwise I don't think I would have found it, and it's great!
Deepti , this is brilliant, looks like tons of fun and it will be so helpful for us!! Your son sounds so cute. My son at the moment just says "tara" (star) every time he sees a star, and that's all he mutters in Hindi, although he understands it.This and some lovely flashcards I received in Hindi (Linguacious cards if you're curious) will help us lots I am sure!
And I already want to learn more so I can understand too.
Azeem: Hello everyone. I'm new to this forum, and I'm so glad to be here. I came across this forum reading Adam's book Maximize Your Child's Bilingual Ability.

Azeem: I will be a father soonest, and I'm curious about nurturing my child's English and my local dialect 'Yoruba' speaking ability from the start. I live in Germany, where English is a minority language.
