Early this morning, we brought Gladys along to school too so that she is familiar with the environment. She will be in Nursery next year as well. I cannot imagine how busy we will be bringing the children to their new school separately.
The first comment when Mrs Liang (Chinese teacher) spoke to me is "Denver's pronounciation is not clear. Especially the sounds 'Te', 'De'. Need to read and speak more". Well, that's a tricky cos Denver don't really have an interest with Chinese. I was told that the school will not be teaching Hanyu Pinyin and she suggested us to send Denver for lessons on it at the Community Center. (Which we already did and his CC's teacher will start teaching them in another month or so). I guess it's not wise to teach them too early as it will cause confusion to the child. Plus, it's always best to learn to recognise words first than depending on Hanyu Pinyin.
