Thought of the day: On Jasmine's request, I am teaching her Chinese myself this semester. We had our first "lesson" this afternoon. We read a little book, worked on pronunciations, made flash cards and, most surprisingly, had a lot of fun doing this together. I wish I had done this in the past instead of sending her to Chinese classes. I have always thought that it's better to have someone else, especially if s/he is a trained professional, teach your child. Now I have reason to think that it may not always be the case. Perhaps soon enough I will regret our decision to have home lessons, but right now I am pretty optimistic that it will work out.
