[ACTIVITY REPORT] French & Multilingual Playgroup March 2014

We had the French & Multilingual Playgroup on 12nd March. 10 members with children joined this playgroup. We changed the place and this was held at Furocho Chiiki Care Plaza near JR Kannai station. The room was big and there was a kitchen next to the room. Children could play actively.

Some mothers brought picture books for us. The English books were "My Daddy", "I love my mummy" and "Everybody Loves Chiristmas!". The Japanese ones were "Inai inai baa (いないいないばあ It's like Peek-a-boo)" and "Shirokuma no pantsu (しろくまのぱんつ It means polar bears' underpants.)". The stories of some books were humorous and refrains of the words attracted the childrens' interest. These books are very popular and available at bookstores in Yokohama and online.


We also enjoyed singing "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star" in Hindi. A mother from India introduced it to us. It was very interesting to sing the same song in various languages! If you're interested in the pronunciation, you can listen to it on You Tube("Twinkle Twinkle Little Star in Hindi").
We will be able to announce the date of the next playgroup soon.
Please come and join us!
