Lately Reese has been reading signs in Bahasa Malaysia and writing imaginary Chinese Characters! So it's time to teach him the two languages.
I am weak in Bahasa Malaysia and a total banana when it comes to Chinese. How am I suppose to teach him these two languages? I have been thinking about this for sometime.
Yesterday at Popular book store, I decided to get some books to kickstart our BM and Chinese learning. So to start BM learning, I need to teach him 'suku kata' first and then blending/learning words and eventually sentences. Hopefully it won't be too stressful! As for Chinese, mmm... trickier, I will have to consult my mother on pronunciation. I have problem pronouncing some of the 'ping ying' correctly. Reading short stories seems a challenge to me. My pronunciation really sucks. I will have to learn Chinese together with Reese. For the sick of my child, I will have to overcome my phobia with Chinese characters!
A useful link to some great Chinese Materials for free. It even comes with multimedia support:
The entire site is in Chinese so I had to use Google translate to be able to read what was on the site. Click on Chinese Textbook and it will bring you to the course materials. Have fun downloading the materials! :)

|First thing after he woke up..... got a piece of paper and started copying Chinese characters from one of his new book. Hope his interest is not temporary! :)|
