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!
**My new book, "28 Bilingual English-Spanish Fairy Tales & Fables", is now available at booksellers worldwide!** Adam Beck is the author of the popular nonfiction books "Maximize Your Child's Bilingual Ability" and "I WANT TO BE BILINGUAL!" (illustrated by Pavel Goldaev) as well as the award-winning humorous novel "How I Lost My Ear" (illustrated by Simon Farrow).
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.
Najwa: My eldest sings and verbalizes his figures/cars stories in an invented language that has English sounds and Italian accent. Is it his way to disconnect from his multilingual world?

Adam Beck: Najwa, it's hard to respond to your question without knowing the full details of the situation. I suggest starting a thread at a suitable board and offering as much information about these circumstances as you can.

Marisa: Merry Christmas to you, Adam, and to everyone! I also hope 2021 is better than this year we're about to end. It shouldn't be too difficult, right?
