>> Rachel: Welcome back! It's time for Chompers, your morning and night toothbrushing show.
Today our friend Jasmine is here with a special interview. Jasmine, take it away.
>> Jasmine: Thanks! Start brushing on the top of your mouth and here is chompion chloe speaking tagalog to count us off
>> KIDS: 3, 2, 1 brush!
Its World Week and tonight our friend Shahzad is back to tell us more about Pakistan, and Urdu, the language they speak there.
>> Jasmine: So, Arabic, Hindi and Farsi are other languages -- so Urdu is made up of parts of all of those other languages?
>> Shahzad: Yeah, so Urdu speakers can speak to Hindi speakers, but the difference is, hindi and urdu are written differently, using different scripts.
Whats a script? Find out after you switch to the other side of the top of your mouth, and brush the molars in the way back
>> Jasmine: So What are different scripts? What does that mean?
>> Shahzad: That means hindi speakers write with a different alphabet than urdu speakers, so hindi speakers use a script called sanskrit, and urdu speakers write in a script based on arabic.
>> Jasmine:oh so script means the letters, the letters you use when you're writing.
>> Shahzad: The actual letters are entirely different but when you speak its pretty much the same language
>> Jasmine: Ok so are there any cool words in urdu that you can teach us?
>> Shahzad: Hangama is a word that's coming into my head right now. Hungama is like to make a racket.
>> Jasmine: Oh like you're making a lot of noise.
>> Shahzad: Yeah.
>> Jasmine: Hungama. Hungama which even just sounds like a fun word.
>> Shahzad: It does!
>> Jasmine: Like I'm gonna like if your mom was gonna tell you like you guys are making too much noise in there. She'd say like keep down that Hungama?
>> Shahzad: yeah Hungama que ahe? What is this Hungama. What is this riot.
>> Jasmine: Whats your favorite thing about speaking another language?
>> Shahzad: Speaking urdu is hard for me but it makes me feel more connected to my family… Speaking Urdu reminds me of the place that my family is from, that I dont see that often, but have this strange connection to.
>> Jasmine: That's it for Chompers tonight, but come back tomorrow for more world week. Until then, 3, 2, 1 spit!
