I am NOT forcing Liya on developing multilingual skills, but as she is 90% fluent in Malayalam, I am beginning to get her a 'hang' of other languages, which she would require in future *Insha Allah*. She has a good vocabulary in English, and lately started forming short sentences in English, as well. Hindi is the language she spoke for first time ever, as I was having a domestic helper (back in India) who spoke only Hindi.
Arabic is one of the pure foreign language for her, not being heard widely, except Holy Quran recitation. Therefore, we listen to YouTube videos, occasionally. Embedded below is one of her all time favorite Arabic song. She is listening to this song from her 2nd month of birth onwards. :)
What I like about this video?* Alif baa thaa.. (Arabic alphabets) are sung in a cute and impressive way.
* Liya and I absolutely love the kids over there. They wiggle around in 'their-own' way, not in a preplanned or artificial manner. This 'natural blend' makes the video even appealing.
Even if, you are not multilingual/not interested in Arabic, I would recommand you to have a look at it and enjoy the charming performance by those cute munchkins.
