Ohh look at me I got here first! So not much here, have a bunch of work to do so this will probably be my only stop in today. Just got a bunch of Christmas pics from the family so I'm looking through those too. Deciding whether or not to go to NYC this weekend....argh I just don't know. My BIL and SIL want to see Khalil, the ticket (plane) is about $150 from here (1 hr flight) vs the train (4hrs) or the super cheap bus (not high on my list with a 2 yr old). Hubby is stressed cus my SIL's nephew from France is staying with them too, he doesn't want me to be alone in the house with him... What would you do?

Happy Tuesday! I was waiting around for somebody to start a thread.

Mrs. Amera.....if you do decide to go to NYC have a nice visit and a safe trip. Can you try and make it a point to not be left alone at their house with the nephew?

Happy Tuesday!! Happy Holidays!!

Back from a good 5 nights at my parents. I am SO happy that my parents and my husband get along so well.

My mom was critical of his lack of English improvement. She blames me since I speak so much Spanish with him.

Do/did any of you have problems speaking only English in the home, to help your SO?

No because he had to speak English because otherwise we could barely converse in rudimentary French! My BIL and SIL are both Moroccan - and he has lived here for like 9 years, they speak Arabic in their home, watch Arabic TV, have Arabic friends etc. My husband who has been here 3 years speaks better English than his brother. So there is definetely something to speaking only English....

We speak only English in our home besides when my husband speaks with the baby when I am not in the home.....he speaks Arabic to him. We wouldn't have much to talk about if I had to speak Arabic. I think immersing him in English is the best thing he can do to help himself. My husband knew English prior to us getting married but his language has improved so much since he has arrived here. He still says a few quirky things every now and then and has a very strong ME accent but most people understand him.

I have to fight with my hubby to talk to the boys in Arabic, he says English is so easy for him now that he has a hard time remembering to talk to them in Arabic!

Morning everyone

Let him speak Arabic to the baby also. You will be so surprised that the baby will learn both english and arabic. It will be great. I have no husband speak to the kids all the time in Arabic, German and French. I dont know how much they're learning from so many languages, but its fun to hear them expecially when they start adding words for all the languages together and they think they are speaking just one of the languages...

My youngest knows a lot more Arabic than the oldest becuase his babysit talks to him in Arabic all day. He totally talks Arabish LOL half the words in English half in Arabic. The coolest thing is that he understands both languages easiliy.

Good morning ladies

MrsAmera..I can relate because I cant ever be alone with any men unless like my father or brother.

Even at work, the toilet is downstairs and one time the guys from the office were working down there....I told him there is a lock on the door :blink:

Sorry but some things I just cant understand...like we live amongst MEN and WOMEN

Geez

My husband had no choice but to learn English, which is no easy feat over the internet and phone. I mean I didnt know any Arabic so I wouldnt be able to understand him at all.

I am amazed that in the years prior to him arriving here he has learned so much. His accent is heavy and

his grammar isnt always correct but anyone who can hear can understand him just fine. Now we are

just fine tuning his pronouns and grammar and getting used to slang :wacko:

As for me, I have been telling him all along I Want to learn arabic. I know some words but not much.

There is no need for us to speak in Arabic but if/when we have a child I know it would be mostly English

but definitely Arabic used by my husband. No problem but it would be nice if I could understand too :whistle:

Have a good day

I cant wait to be finished work

12 noon tomorrow!!!!!!!!!!!!
