Bao Bei Reading Wonderland : Fee structure

We are looking for a decent place for Ethan to learn Mandarin. Our first stop is the well-known Bao Bei Reading Wonderland. Bao Bei Reading Wonderland, children’s super-learning programme? Really so super? While Darling and I were busy enquiring about the programme, Ethan kept himself entertained… He’s getting restless. Okay, okay… so you are hungry. Let’s go Snowflake :P Before we left, I almost fainted when given the fee structure… For a 1 1/2 hours […]

Foot in mouth project

To put one’s foot in one’s mouth means to embarrass oneself by saying the wrong thing. But fret not as that is not the issue here today.  The past few days have been very hectic, running from one place to another and come night time, classes back to back. But I like to take things positively, it’s better to be busy than being left idle and grow cobwebs around you, right? Tonight I just don’t […]

Bao Bei Reading Wonderland.. any good?

Okay. Since Ethan’s reading in English is progressing well, we thought of sending him for Chinese lessons. I am a bit sceptical (being a banana, I’m afraid he might not be able to cope). But I heard that the best age to learn a new language is before the child turns 6 years old. We are looking high and low for a reputable and reliable centre when the obvious came to mind – Bao Bei […]

The Sound of ABC

I never like to teach children below the age of 4 reading the phonetic way. I find it troublesome and they found it confusing. I always use the whole word approach for younger children. But as I was teaching my older students the phonetic approach, this busy body of mine was always around. Yesterday, he requested for the ABC book and started to sound all the 26 letters of the alphabets. To mothers out there […]

Ethan reading Mandarin @ 23mths old

I’m so overly excited right now. My little ‘Banana Boy’ can read in Mandarin! I don’t speak a single word of any Chinese dialect, but for the sake of Ethan, we got him some Chinese kindie books and started to teach him simple words such as family members a couple of days ago. Surprisingly, he gets it very fast! Even faster than when I was teaching him to read in English! Now, I myself needs […]

How to start your child on reading (Intro)

Since the posting of Ethan’s reading video, I’ve been flooded with emails asking me to share tips on how to start young toddlers to read. I am all so happy to share my two cents worth as I believe in nothing but to make every child a reader. But, let me clarify with all the mommies and daddies out there that I am by no means an expert in this field and I should not […]

Reading Sentences @ 20 mths old

Ethan has finally started to read sentences. It was quite tricky getting him to focus one word at a time and proceed to the next word and on and on. Initially he was overwhelm with all the words in a sentence that he just look at them and kept quiet! But now, he finally understood what reading sentences means and is slowly getting used to the concept. The whole-word approach is based on research findings […]

Learning to read – Phonics vs Whole Word Approach

I am sure most of us would like to teach our little precious to read as early in their lives as possible. But not many knows what method to use. Generally there are two methods most commonly used in teaching/learning reading, the phonics way and the whole word approach way. The phonics way is reading by making sense of the spelling and sounds of the word while the whole word approach way is reading by […]
