In addition to Chinese classes and assignments, how can I improve my child(ren)'s Chinese ability?
Chinese Americans have no linguistic advantage or talent for learning Chinese. If there is an advantage, it depends on whether the family and social environment provide an environment for learning Chinese. Parents should give their children more Chinese input in their daily life to clear up the obstacles for overseas children to learn Chinese. After accumulating some literacy, the appropriate reading materials can help Chinese Learning. A lot of hard work, a lot of harvests.
Is there a conflict between learning Chinese and speaking English?
Learning Chinese does not mean abandoning children's English. On the contrary, bilingual children will be more sensitive to English and master it better. Our children are destined to become bilingual and dual-cultural people. Language is closely related to people's self-consciousness.
Children should be encouraged to speak Chinese, but not forced. Language is not only cognitive but also emotional and social. It's no surprise that children can't learn Chinese well without their families' support and contact with Chinese outside the two-hour Chinese class every week.
