Learn & speak Punjabi for kids

Updated on September 29, 2016

Teaching your kid Punjabi & Sikhi?

Sat Sri akal, mommies and daddies!

This lens is dedicated to teaching your kid Punjabi. As a mom of the soon to be trilingual, speaking baby, I made a promise to myself and to grandparents that my kid will speak all languages. So I made a page of all available educational Punjabi toys and books. I found great bilingual books, Punjabi flash cards, alphabet games and many more.

At last, a fun way to start teaching your children Punjabi! This safe and durable foam puzzle is the first in many fun MY LIPI products to help teach Punjabi. This puzzle measures 14" x 25", when assembled, and includes 41 letters and 4 shapes. When playing with this puzzle, your children will be having fun while learning their letters (and shapes) and building their motor skills and hand-eye coordination! This brightly colored puzzle also allows for parents to introduce their children to colors.

Why it was created?

"For our children to know our Punjabi language and culture is very important to both myself, Narindar Chouhan, and my husband, Sukhvinder Chouhan. I was born and raised in Canada, however, have always had a keen interest in Punjabi. I speak Punjabi fluently and have been able to read and write since I was about 8 years old. My interest in my culture grows each day as I learn more. My husband was born and raised in Punjab, India and moved to Canada in 1997. Though he has embraced the Canadian culture, he has never forgotten his Punjabi language and culture."

      Very cool lens- we have a high population of Punjabi speaking folks in our area and I've wanted to teach my daughter the language. Interestingly French is the other national language in Canada, but certainly in western Canada we have a higher Asian population than we do French Canadian. I've always thought Punjabi should be offered in schools as well as French. Many thanks.
