Is she speaking well in Chinese? Give her more confident, let her watch more cartoons (OKTO channel) & let her mixed/play with kids who speak English. Childrens pick up languages very fast !

yes...childeren learn langguage very fast, if not wrong is before 6 or 7yo.

one of my friend, mommy speak hokkian, father speak france,grandma granpa speak chinese, maid speak bahasa,school speak english..... :good::sport-smiley-004::sport-smiley-004: 5 langguage in one time :notti: ....

and children is very unique, they know what language they need to use to speak to who ;)

She is very fluent with chinese, now her english slightly better as some of her classmate only english speaking so if she wants to play with them die die also needs to learn.

Luckily like u said children learn fast, now after 1 yrs she can speak some basic and understand more words already.

Tat why i keep telling her, must learn more than can teach daddy and play with her classmate. :dancingqueen:

chinese is very important too. if she good in chinese keep it on.... let her learn more in writing... cause not everyone can write in chinese, but most can write in english..... :notti:

how good if i can write in chinese :bangwall::bangwall: .... i only know how to write my name nia :notti:8|

Kids have to get started on Languages early as possible when they're very young so that they will recognise alot of words easily. Its what you call 'word' imprint. Thats why alot of schools make use of the memory skills to come out with excellent results for kids.

Phonetics is an example. Picture cards is also another way to do it. Word games like scrabble also helps & its ok to carry a dictionary to phrase alot of things. Kids learn through spelling first before forming sentences. That is why spelling is a important step & once mastered, its really easy to get them started on reading.

yeah u right bun, need to start early as possible. when they get older...its too lazy for them to learn already..

but which is important ya...english enrichment or chinese? :dunno::dunno:

Ah see... sure no problems one... :) Nowadays... PC have those storytelling thing that can watch and listen at the same time. So can get her to watch. then... after she watch a few times ah you ask her to tell you the story la! Sure can one. :)

Nice to see parents giving so much home support ;)

Recently just Fail my exam only :(

So better let my wife handle teaching part, and i stay as playmate better.

nice horrr...at home hv private teacher lerrr :good:

eh maybe u can try leapfrog one, its veryyyyy nice....last time i teach my gal about abc, i teach her from :sport-smiley-004: till :furious: she also cant remember, but i try to gv her watch leapfrog...and she can remember everythinggggggg :notti:

Keke but you need to upgrade yourself as a dad too. Most of us have at one point thought of our parents as "old fashioned" in a sense cos cannot relate to this and that until we have kids. That why we cannot make the same mistake again with our future kids too.

ya lor now kids cannot teach with oldfashion style liao :bangwall: everytime ask her this cannot that cannot , and she always ask WHY???and u need answer all her question de...... :bangwall:

IMHO,

If Chinese is the mother tongue & the only language being spoken in the house & everywhere, then english language have to be cultivated for kids in lessons since they don't lose out in chinese with it being spoken mainly.

But English has a lot of rules and even more exceptions. More exposure to stories and all that will help her remember all the rules and stuff better. That's what I think...

But being bilingual, I've to agree that Chinese ain't easy either. LOL but I managed to memorise my way through O levels... :P

Chinese actually very easy de, just rem the stroke from where to where can le.

Like drawing, ask ur gal to draw than ask her to relate to something and bring in the chinese character than she can rem.

eg. home in chinese ask her to draw a house and bring the chinese character of jia 家, than tell her the top is the roof and roof cover over the ppl down below. something like tis to help her rem.

But for english than too bad i also lousy haha... dun know how to teach

You see, kids tend to be more tuned in towards their environment ma. so what they take in is through the culture and environment, naturally it is more natural for them to speak in the most commonly spoken language at home right? This means that if they're strong in their mother tongue, it is a little different as they don't speak english as much as they'd like at home, mostly with their friends & outside. But its short form english or singlish if you pay more attention.

There is the small group of kids whom can switch languages effortlessly without having any bad grammar or pronounciation.

If you guys think back to your own learning education & the environment laat time as a student, what do you think?

Hi Cute,

I strongly agree with u. Like my gal, 6 yrs old this year, she speaks to me n hb in English & sometimes Mandarin but when she turn around to speak to her maternal grandmother, she speaks Mandarin and with her paternal grandmother she will also automatically change channel to Cantonese. Very cute one.

My gal is just like a parrot, she likes to echo what I talk and she still can tell me she copy-cat me. :bangwall:
