Even mummies here read these novels, I have nvr picked up any chinese novels in my whole life, so paiseh to admit...and I am hoping my kids to pick them up 1 day ... :oops:

btw, my kids like books alot, #1 reads on her own and #2/#3 enjoy reading time (they will request for reading time thru'out the day but i am guilty of rejecting their request though i will read at least once a day). I attribute that to no computer and no gaming. They are not exposed to using computer or play games (computer, xbox, etc). if they play any kind of games, usually uno, board games. Any one of you think the same? or am I too paranoid abt such electronic stimulation?
Hi porcupine12trade,
I am also strongly against computer games, PSP, etc. I am teaching hundreds of students now, age 17-19 years old, and I have seen so many smart students who are doing badly because they would rather spend their time playing computer games. They could have gone into university, but now they have lost any chances of doing so. It is really sad to see them wasting their youth on computer games.
Many parents like to give PSP, or even iphones to their kids to play games, because these keep them occupied and the kids will not bother them. However, parents do not realize what kind of harm they are doing to their kids.

As for Jin Yong novels, I read them when I was in Sec 2, and after I finished reading all of his works, I scored high marks in Chinese effortlessly. Many primary school kids in China have read his novels before 10 years old, but I haven't heard of any in Singapore who have done so yet. The standards of Chinese in our schools are so low nowadays, our primary school kids cannot possibly read and understand these books unless their parents have been teaching them at home (or they are kids from mainland China).

For your P2, try the books in my blog, in the age 6 to 10 group :
http://tamarindvillage.blogspot.com/201 ... child.html

My girl especially loves these books :
露露和拉拉(4册)
什么都行魔女商店(全四册)

These are the books that made her love Chinese. She has read these books many times. Her current favourite is 笑猫日记. The standards of these books may be too tough for most of our lower primary kids, but read with your child (not to her) and she will learn very quickly.

I am glad that you find my phonics blog helpful. :wink:
Depends on who it is to be honest. Although I did not read Jing Yong Novels whatsoever when I was 10, I had already read long chunks of Ancient China History in Chinese on Wikipedia then.

Hi,

I have just purchased the 四五快读 series, and am planning to teach my child with it at home. However, my Chinese is really sub-standard and I'm having difficulty understanding the parent's guide included in the books! Does anyone know if there is an English translation of the parent's guide? I remembered seeing a blog page with the translation some time ago.

TIA!!
