thank u for startin this post. now that i am pregnant i have been thinkin a lot about the same thing. i am arab but was born and raised in uk so i am native english speaker. i do speak little tiny (no more then 15% if not less ) arabic. my husband on the other hand hes half arab half english but can speak fluent arabic mashaallah. we speak to each other in english. i would really love my children to b able to speak arabic.
I am now trying to learn Arabic so we can use only one language in the house which is arabic inshaallah and English outside the home.
