I am teaching him Arabic, and hopefully a little German as well.
My husband is from Jordan, so he speaks Arabic to DS, but unfortunately isn't home enough for it to really be effective. I am hoping to one day take DS to go visit DH's family in Jordan as well!
My mother is from Germany, and I learned a little German growing up, but I regret not learning more. I am hoping to introduce German here and there as well. My mom took DS and I to Germany when he was two, and I know he's been begging to go back again, and I would love for him to learn the language!
Hi, that's great that your kids are fluent (or almost fluent in your son's case). My kids are bi-lingual German/English, but the older they get the harder it seems to maintain. How did you manage reading and writing in Japanese? Did you teach them? Did you use materials or did you just "wing" it? I'm thinking about ordering the curriculum and teaching material for German from the Germany educational ministry - it's very expensive and I'm hoping it's money well spent, but I really don't see another way to teach them correct grammar and spelling... Any advise? thanks!
I tried to go on your site - is it still working? I'd love to hear how you use sign language daily :)
