...my first daughter was born, growing slowly to fluency just as a baby does. I still have to work to keep my vocabulary and grammar just a few words ahead of my oldest daughter. Whenever she begins learning something new, I have to study up as well.
It has not been easy to raise my children in a foreign tongue, one which I am just learning myself. But now my relationship with my children has been formed in the Assyrian language, and it has become the language of my own heart. The mission of this website supports the mission of our family - we ensure that the Assyrian language is represented in play, songs, books, television, and worship. We are proud to give our children the gift of their Assyrian language and heritage.
