Mother Tongue with Sirine – An award winning multilingual podcast for kids
Created in partnership with Kinderling Kids Radio and winner of Best Use of Digital or Social Media at the NSW Government’s 2019 Premier’s Multicultural Communications Awards. Each episode will have you exploring a vibrant culture you might not know so much about. Learn to say hello in Cantonese, goodbye in Koori, sing a song in Greek, or learn all about the Lebanese flag.
The idea came from my experience with my daughter; the Arabic kids songs my mother sang to me as a child stayed with me and I sang them to her when she was born. Elyssa is now 6 years old, and still loves these songs – she’ll never forget where they came from and we should never lose this connection with our language of origin.
Sharing language and culture brings kids closer together and sparks curiosity about the world, so hope you listen and enjoy!
