Avoiding Crisis


with 4 comments

Here are the promised videos from my daughter’s recent school concert. The theme of this year’s concert was fairy-tales. There were butterflies and dwarfs, bats and princesses, skeletons, ghosts, witches and fairies.

In Abbey’s class the girls were princesses and the boys were bats.

They sang and danced.

The preschool we send our children to is an Argentine bilingual private school. And while it is bilingual in practice, Spanish is definitely the dominant language of the school. That being said, the concerts are all in English – I guess that this is one way to display to the parents the progress the kids are making with language acquisition. For native English speakers, and there are a few of us, it is always an interesting experience to watch our children singing along using the very very Spanish influenced pronunciation of words. You may be able to hear what I’m talking about during the first video.

Anyhoo. On with the show:

In both videos Abbey is in yellow and is always on the far left hand side of the frame.

  4. My husband speaks to both of them in Urdu but neither of them will speak it themselves. My son understands more Urdu then my daughter because he lived in Pakistan for awhile.
