Conversations with Remarkable Grandmothers

Jay returns with his second video on “Me/mine, You/yours” with his Grandmother who speaks his heritage language, a dialect of Palestinian Arabic. Jay would love to learn it and has begun learning it using the WAYK method. Check out his first video if you haven’t already: “What is that?”.

We really can’t say enough how happy this makes us. Go forth and make videos with your grandparents’ languages, and keep your ancestral languages thriving!

Vodpod videos no longer available.

  1. Jay, I love the end of the video where your grandmother blanches a bit at signing “whose.” That sign might be a bit gendered…

    These videos are so wonderful. They bring tears to my eyes to watch. Thank you Jay for going through the work of recording and editing these!
