Does he attend any enrichment classes eg. Berries, Tien Hsia etc?

My son used to be averse to Chinese but his attitude changed when he attended the classes. He still refuses to speak Chinese to me at home but his HCL grades are good so far.

he could be having a strict/fierce etc teacher.
my boy used to drag his feet over learning chinese, but is now in automode largely due to influence by his previous year's Chinese Teacher.

Yes, my son has Chinese tution class, and he does enjoy his tution class, indeed he asked for me.

Indeed we do speak Chinese at home and watch Chinese moive. But when he has School Chinese HW or spelling, he will non-stop saying "I hate Chinese". Thus a 30 mins HW will take him 2 hrs.

I really hope he will meet a good Chinese teacher in School. He is taking HCL too, but only manage to pass.
