Bercerita bersama Adik Ayden: Belalang dan Semut

Ayden is 3 years 5 months. He is still not attending any preschool at the moment so it is entirely my responsibility to keep up with his total development.

Children pick up a new language best below 6 years of age so I take this opportunity to teach Ayden an extra language besides English. I teach him to speak in Bahasa Malaysia. I wish I can teach him Mandarin but that is totally an alien language to me as I don’t speak, read nor write in Chinese :cry:

For children to pick up a new language, we have to constantly speak to them in that language. It is good to read together and tell stories in that particular language.

Ayden enjoys listening to stories. I often read to him. Today, we did role play. Ayden becomes the storyteller and I sit to listen.

This is the video of Ayden telling the story of the Grasshopper and Ants in Bahasa Malaysia:

    Smart boy!! In Malaysia we really have to teach the kids a few languages….
    Like in my family, Mandarin, English, Hokkien are the must.. As for BM, I leave it to the teacher :p

    Yay to Ayden! So fluent in BM when so young. I agree with CY’s suggestion, Ethan can converse in Mandarin with Ayden so Ayden will pick up Mandarin quickly too.
