Re: Q&A - P1 Malay

Hi, I want to ask your advice.
My child will be going to P1 in 2014. Currently his kindy just offers Chinese as a 2nd language which he is taking.
Unfortunately being Sindhi (Indian, but not Tamil speaking), I do not know much about Chinese; just little dily conversations with my Chinese friends.
On the other hand, I am okay in Malay (having taken Malay in PSLE and O Level).
Thus, I have 2 challenges awaiting me :scratchhead: :-

1) Do I want him to take Chinese in Primary School (where my help is limited) or Malay (that I can help him after work as I am a FTWM).
2) If I do want him to take Malay in Primary School, I would need to start now with him. Would anyone have the preschool Malay syallabus that one needs to know before going to P1?

My child took Mandarin in kiddy but opted for Malay in Pri Sch cos according to her it was easier to learn. I am coaching her Malay 7 days a week and yet her Malay is terrible! No one to blame but myself. I regretted not speaking to her more in Malay when she was younger. Unless you dont mind hiring a personal home tutor to come in at least 5 days a week for Mandarin I say go for it. Good luck!
