I've asked this question here before, but thought I'd try again, in case any great new videos have come up in the past few years since I last asked. ;) Do you know of any great Arabic lanugages videos on DVD for kids who are learing as a second language? Specifically, I'm looking for videos that are:
- in spoken Arabic, not classical
- mostly secular (we're not religious)
- appropriate for children who have a little vocabulary, but cannot actually speak Arabic at this point.
Any ideas? We have the Little Pim Arabic DVDs, which the kids like, but DH grumbles every time I put them on because they aren't in spoken Arabic. The kids also liked 'Alif is for Asad', but the amount of Arabic they could learn from that one was limited.
I keep thinking something like American cartoons or Disney movies translated into Arabic would be perfect, since they'd be familiar with the story, and might be more apt to sit and watch. I remember a mama here from the Detroit area saying she was able to find translated Disney videos in the Toys R Us there, but I haven't been able to find any myself.
