We went back early today as there were no more classes in for this trimester. Alhamdulillah, I managed to finish all the syllabus within 7 weeks and students may have 1 more week to make preparation on their own for the coming final examination. Hubby on the other side, would have just need to be the one-and-only panel for the presentation in his class, Arabic for Communication and Culture.
Our first step was fecthing up the two princess, Widaad and Wafa'.Driving towards the babysitter's house, we saw a long trailer...I started to break the ice, "If Widaad is here, she surely will point her cute fingers to the trailer, saying ...CAR..CARRR....!!":)
My cute toddler now can recognise only bus, car and motor. Any lorry, trailer, pick up or other mobile passed her sight would be considered as car, since she seldom see those vehicles. That's how children learn in fact, by observing. The more frequent they see things, the easier and faster they can learn to recognise them.
Hubby then added, how does car...gets his name?Why do we call car as CAR? The same goes to Malay Language. Why on earth do we pronounce the car as KERETA?Where do we get the name from?
Hubby started his preach:) In science view, how do you get the embryo name?If you asked those scientist, most probably they would say, in science, terms are created by the name of whom discover the invention.
Arabic Language is different and very unique.Any name given was actually with very valid reasons. Pouting...I began to ask few things , and suprisingly ..indeed, we call them by reasons! WOw....UNBELEIVABLE...Arabic Language is indeed a quran language. ..So wonderful and magic:)
