Nie hao ma?

There’s hope! I am not kidding myself, hopefully.

Celeste’s used to converse in cantonese when she was much younger. Ever since she went to a nursery, she re-adjusted her “channel” and now only converse in English. Hence, whenever she speaks Cantonese or even Mandarin, it’s like a caucasian attempting to talk in chinese.

Red alarm was raised recently when I had a “meet the teacher” session at Celeste’s school. Apparently, whenever there’s a Chinese class going on and Celeste will be moved to tears as she couldnt comprehend what was going on.

We quickly adopted a more “friendly” approach with Celeste; to encourage her and to make it fun to speak Mandarin. Of course, all the conversation in Mandarin were with Carment as I dont speak Mandarin at all.

Ever since the new approach, Celeste is making every possible attempt to use chinese words to express her thoughts!

That’s a big consolation. There’s hope. Finally.
