I wrote about 宝贝 learning words so that she could message all her friends (her friends’ parents, to be precise) and her favourite adults.
Well she has progressed to being able to carry a very simple conversation.
Not the world’s top conversationalist, but adequate. It’s actually pretty repetitive. She can spell the high frequency words and she can guess the words from the question so if she can’t really spell the word, she copies the word from the question. Or if she can’t remember the entire spelling of the whole word, she will hunt down the story book which has the word, just like one of our open book exams. It’s really fun for her as she gets a response from the other party. She gets the kick out of it. So she’s Miss Eager Beaver for new words. It’s better that she bugs me to teach her words, than for me to hound her to learn new words.
So far, her jiu jiu has been the most responsive person on whatsapp. So he’s one of her favourite whatsapping friend right now!
As anti-gadget-for-children I am, it does make a very good learning tool when well utilised.
I’m visualising myself teaching her how to start a simple blog next year. That should be quite fun. 🙂
(Disclaimer: the adult conversationalist has lousy grammar!)
