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!

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.
What's on your mind right now? Just type and hit "Enter" to share it here!
Amy: @sheilac, I suggest you create an actual thread on the "Questions & Concerns" board, so fellow Zoo Keepers can help you with your concerns. 256 characters is too little to discuss something that is so important to your heart

Mayken: Adam Beck, thanks for that very interesting and timely post - it justifies the large order for ml books and DVDs I'm about to place in view of my daughters upcoming birthday!

Adam Beck: Great to hear this, Mayken! And happy birthday to both yours and mine! (They have the same birthday, don't they?) And if anyone missed that post, here's the link once more...

Mayken: It's our last night in Canada. We've said goodbye to our English-speaking and bilingual English/French friends but we have lots of memories and souvenirs. Let's see how I can keep up the momentum back home.
