what language do your children learn beside their mother tongue?
Living in China, our mother tongue is Madarin Chinese. But my son started to learn English in kindergarten --- and it is very common in big cities. learning english already become something you must do in China, guess because it is really an international language. It is an important course in any school from Kindergarten to college. In the countryside the children start to learn english after grade 3 in elementary school.
My question is: what is it like in the US and the other countries? Are your children learning a second language, or even a third? What language do you learn? How do you learn it? What do you learn it for?
sorry, too many questions. CM likes a magic box to me....I really treasure those opinions and experience sharing by all of you moms.
