Kiran Lyall's passion for the Panjabi language began as a child on her travels to India. In the 1980's and 90's, her annual holidays were spent traveling around the country. Although Kiran learnt Panjabi the traditional way using script, she noticed that there are no books available for English-speaking young children who just want to speak and understand the language. Now a mother herself, Kiran is hoping that the 'Have Fun With - ' series will encourage children to learn their mother tongue.
'Fresh material presupposing no knowledge of Panjabi is now needed to educate a new wave of Panjabi children if the language is to survive outside of Panjab; Kiran Lyall's 'Have fun with Panjabi' assists in serving such a purpose'. Rishi Handa Panjabi Examiner at Kings College London & Panjabi Teacher at SOAS. 'This bright and colourful book will be welcome by the many families in the Panjabi community who have not had the opportunity to learn the Gurmukhi script, but are keen to transmit the language to their young children. It will also be helpful in schools to teachers who are introducing children to different languages. I would have loved such a book when I was a teacher myself.' Dr Raymonde Sneddon Research Fellow in Multilingualism, University of East London. 'This is an excellent resource for the school classroom and library. I think children will find it inviting and accessible as an introduction to the Panjabi language. It will be useful for pupils who have some knowledge of the language as well as complete beginners. The phonetic pronunciation also makes it usable for teachers like myself, with no background knowledge of the language. I will certainly be using this book in my classroom and sending it home for pupils to share with their parents.'
