Arabic with Osratouna
2 – 3 Years
Muslim kids often struggle to learn Arabic if it is not their first language. The older they get, the harder a new language is to learn. Psychological studies indicate that the earlier you start, the better. Some advocates say that you should expose your baby to new languages from 34 weeks until 12 months, when their brain development and potential for language acquisition is at its peak.
Ironically, the ability to learn a second language declines from the age of around 6, exactly when a child starts school. This mean, if you want your child to learn Arabic as a second language, there is no time to waste.
Osratouna is a wonderful series of animated lessons aimed at very young children. You can use this videos with your tiny tots. They love to repeat everything they say, and even if they can’t speak yet, their brains just have the ability to absorb everything around them. This is a bright and colourful way of teaching Arabic through animation. Your little ones will love the visual and creative content Arabic with Orsatouna has to offer.
These are basic introductory lessons where kids can learn alphabets, numbers, colours and everyday objects that they see around them. The images are bright and easily recognisable with funny sound effects for memorability and repetition for them to grasp new words. There is also a fun quiz to reinforce their memory at the end of each lesson.

Tips and tricks
There are quite a few things you can do to reinforce your child’s memory when learning new vocabulary in a foreign language. No matter how young or old your child is, no matter whether they can read or not, they will be able to at least recognise and remember the shape of words that they come across.
- When your child watches a lesson in Arabic, make a chart of the words they learnt so that they can go over it again and again
- Use labels for everyday objects that were mentioned in the videos so that your child learns to recognise the words and they will automatically repeat it every time they see the label on the object.
- It’s okay to let them watch the same videos over and over again. This will reinforce their memories and make sure these words become second nature.
