Language Lesson - Week One

My Mum is a Kiwi and my Dad is a Pakistani, does that makes me a Pakiwi?  Anyway, over the past few months Dad has been trying to teach me some Urdu.  But it's not going so well because he is at work six days a week, so Mum is going to try to teach me.


So today's lesson is colours (using phonetic spelling rather than Urdu script)

kalaa
neela
bhoora
surmai
hara/sabz
naaranji
gulaabi
jaamani
lal
peela

Next week we will learn the days of the week.

Does your family speak a different language at home?  Why don't you teach your readers some easy words from a language you know (other than English)?
