Currently im back for school hunting for Mia.
Its really so difficult to find a school that is up to my expectation.
Ada je yang tak kena.
At my house, we will speak in english with Mia (iam not good in english ..but hubby and me hantam sajalah)
And of coz Mia pun can speak english with us.
But once at school, majority the students and the teachers in smart chaliph are Malay.So they talk in Malay with each other.
So Mia pun dapat lah 1-2 Malay words everyday.
Last week balik dari sekolah..
Mia: "Mommy, Mia fight with hantu mommy"
Mommy: "What is hantu?mommy dont understand"
Mia : "Hantu is ghost..ghost is hantu"
See..now she say hantu already rather than ghost.
Mia " Mommy..daddy said dont korek hidung"
Mia: "Daddy wrong..Mia correct"
Mommy : " Mia correct?
Mia : "Mia said dont pick ur nose..daddy said korek hidung"
Because i alwiz corrected her wheneva she spoke some Malay words..
I dont want she think that to speak in Malay is wrong..like the korek hidung case..
But at this stage i really want her to speak in english.
To find a full English medium school in Bangi is very difficult.Ada tuh ada, contoh like Smart reader,Qdees etc etc..But once the majority of the students and teachers are Malay..so mmg takkan jadi lah English medium tu.
Lainlah kalau kat Subang..Malay student will mix with chinese and indian students.and Of coz they will talk in English with each other.
I believe apa pun yang kita buat kalau takde proper practice mmg tak jadi.
Sbb tu saya tak percaya enlish medium school kat bangi ni...memang la the teachers will teach in English, but bila dgn friends they will prefer talk in Malay.So bila nak practice cakap Enlish.
Now i thinking to enroll Mia kat Apple King in Kajang.Where the majority of the teachers and students are chinese.Jauh lah sket..
Memang takleh tdo balik lah lepas subuh.Mia pun kena bangun pagi2 pakai uniform.

What say you mommies..penting ke tak english medium school ni.
p/s i know..about the important of islamic education too..sekolah Al Amin pun memang depan rumah saya.But they dont accept Mia yet.Tunggulah she turn to 5years old nanti.Baru i enroll her there pula.Let her learn and have fun with english first.Then lepas tu nak cakap malay pun i dont care..at least dia dah ada basic in english
