With the help of Lešonayḏi’s books, it is possible to get young children eager to learn the basics of reading and speaking Aramaic. Through bright colors, interesting
objects, animals and Augmented Reality we hope children will learn the language and have fun doing so.
Lešonayḏi has published three books in the summer of 2019. The titles are: Bonina aḥ ḥaywoṯo (Let’s count the animals),Yëlfina ag gawne (Let’s learn the colors)
and Xabre saqubloye (Contradicting words).
And a year later in the summer of 2020 has Lešonayḏi published two other books. The titles are: (The three boys: my friend) and (The Three Boys: Seth becomes an altar boy). These two books contain Augmented Reality so that the children learn the language in a playful way. We hope children will learn the language and have fun doing so.
All books are written in Aramaic and alphabet. People that are unable to read the Aramaic alphabet, can still learn the Aramaic words and teach their children this way.

Lešonayḏi means my language in Aramaic. The Aramaic language is a very old Semitic language that used to be the Lingua Franca of the Middle East. Many chapters of the Bible were written in Aramaic and even Jesus spoke this language. Nowadays, people that speak Aramaic are living in diaspora, scattered all over the world. Those people speak mostly Neo-Aramaic also known as Turoyo/Suryoyo/Surayt.
I am Helane Numansen-Mutlu, born in Tur Abdin and currently living in the Netherlands. Since I became a grandmother, I realized how important it is to teach my grandchildren our Aramaic language. My own children spoke Aramaic with their grandparents, but the generation of my grandchildren have grandparents that can fluently speak Dutch/Swedish/German/French etc. Therefore I started Lešonayḏi. My purpose is to teach our children, all over the world, our language in a very playful and fun way.
