THE SUMMER HOLIDAYS – It’s every kid’s favourite time of the year. A time where they’re allowed to sleep late, sleep in, play the whole day, and sit in front of their screens. Although I allow them to have that downtime and let loose during the holidays, that doesn’t mean they can stuck their heads on their tablets and glue their faces in front of the TV the whole day. Therefore, some normalcy is needed to prevent the forthcoming lazy days.
So, you’ve read about the advantages of bilingualism and decided to raise your children bilingually. Here’s an honest truth. Teaching bilingual kids can be challenging, confusing, and yet, rewarding. The advantages they’ll reap in the future are endless and they’ll thank you for it. 🙂
It wasn’t something we planned to do. I wasn’t even thinking about the word bilingual and the whole concept of ‘bilingualism’. It just happened. My husband is an Austrian, so he speaks German. And I’m a Malaysian, brought up speaking English at home. And if you do not know about Malaysia, we are a melting pot of various races and therefore, we speak different languages. With that being said, we understand each other very well and even able to speak each other’s language. As for me, I speak English, Malay, Chinese (very basic), and of course German as I’m currently living in Austria.
