Will you teach your kid to speak English very early?
Hi All,

Want to ask kaskusers view about something that makes me wonder. My nephews study in an international school since kindergarten, and their English accent is very good and they are outspoken.

However, I was thinking that they may lose the way Indonesian people think because language is part of culture. For example, if we talk to elder people, Javanese will call Mas/Mbak, but in English, we just mention his/her name.

I am just afraid that if I have children - hopefully soon -, if they speak English too early, they will hesitate to speak in Bahasa Indonesia or even in Bahasa Jawa as my mother tongue because they feel convenient with English.

Should we teach our kid to speak English very early? Will you?

Best

of course i will.There are so many indonesian people who think that english is difficult.because of that they dont want to learn english anymore.If you teach english to your child earlier,he/she won't face this problem.it's ok if you postpone to teach indonesian/javanese to your children.your kid will be able to speak these languages naturally.iloveindonesia

hmmm probably
for me, the motto of learning english (or other languages) is "the sooner, the easier"
or maybe dual-native language? sounds cool but is it even possible? D

relax...
it won't happen.

i was fortunate enough to spend my first few school years in the US and have no problem keeping my javenese roots and manners.

i spoke english outside the house and kromo javanese to my parents.


@TS
please...please teach your kids kromo besides english
it's sad to see javanese kids today unable to properly speak in their native tongue and address their elder properly.

ngoko and indonesian will come around naturally with play, TV, and school time.
no need to worry about those two language.

don't you think that you might be a lil bit overeacted??? Not all Indonesian kids learning English call their nannies in just names. Infact, all of my students are still calling older people to them with proper salutations (i.e: mas/mbak/kak/pak) ... If your nephews don't do that, well, I'm afraid that you have to check their parents on how the children are taught at home.

I know a kid who speaks more English than bahasa Indonesia in his life and he still has got all it takes to be Indonesian. Plus, he started to like Gatot Kaca as his favorite hero in addition to Spiderman.

Well, I have thought of this so many times and in my opinion it's okay. How can I say so? Well, since English is a very popular foreign language and the first rank for international language I think I have to teach my future children one day when they are ready.

Don't worry about the thing, they won't forget Indonesian since our education use it ranging in kindergarten till university. All you need is just get them used to speak English at home. Anyway, when kids play together with their friends in their neighborhood they will speak Indonesian right? Except if you live abroad among the people who speak English you supposed to worry if one day your children forget Indonesian.

If I were you, I would teach my children only 2 languages; Javanese (depends on your ethnicity) and English. Let their kindergaten teachers n neigborhood teach them Indonesian. That's all I can say. D



Well, since I'm shit at English, please analize what I have written.

well, since there's a possibility that i wont raise my kid in indonesia, i think he/she must learn english early,, if not, he/she won't be able to communicate with his/her friends.. lol

but i remember i learn english quite early.. there's this awesome show when i was a kid called sesame street.. learn a lot from that show.. and my parents used to have a rule when i was a kid.. that we have to use english at dinner.. i think those are good methods for your kids..

i speak english everydy with my babyboy since he was 3 month, now he is 6 month, and i think he already understand what i'm saying.
we must start early so our kid will get used to. i bad in english, but for my kid's future i must keep learn english more hardly.

i speak english and my husband speak bahasa to our babyboy, i think this is best combination.

I agree with u,,

beside in era globalitation, now English is very important as an International language.
one time at English course place I was surprised, there are many children who learn English at that place, so in this case perhaps I will attend my child to English course early,,
