What we're about
The goal of this meetup is to help our children practice Arabic by organizing playdates where they can interact with other Arabic-speaking kids. The meetings will take place in the East Bay - and beyond in the San Francisco Bay Area depending on events.
Our group will meet every other week in public venues such as parks, libraries or museums, wherever children can play together and experience Arabic in a living way. It will also be an opportunity for parents to meet like-minded moms and dads who are committed to helping their children grow with several languages.
As my 2-year-old son is growing older, I find there aren't many opportunities for him to speak Arabic beyond the immediate family circle. As native Arabic speakers, it is our responsibility to transmit our language and love of languages to our children. What better way to help them learn than having them meet Arabic-speaking friends?
