It's a must gan iloveindonesia
I've already make a "to do" list for my future child. One of it is to teach them to speak English in early years. I admit, it must be very difficult, but i think it's worth to try

Someday when i have kids of my own, ill teach them Indonesian (for sure!), English, Arabic, Chinese, German, and Javanese.

I don't think so.
the first language I'll teach to my successors must be Javanese.
I don't want their grandparents scold me for knowing their grandchildren can't speak Javanese fluently like their daddy

i was in international school until i finish my studies including universities..my cousins are also in international school..but we didn't lose our culture at all..we're chinese and we still hold our culture proudly, we still call our elders by their status, and we definitely still have our manner..

my cousin just can't really speak or understand indonesian language..but the fact is that u can learn bahasa as u grow up..u can survive without it even here in indonesia..no where else in the world use bahasa as a language..but english are used almost everywhere in the world, and u sure can't survive without it today..

So am I dude. I would teach my kid to learn english as early as he/she can. But, i think something that make it'll be different is the style. Because of we're prefer with eastern style than western.
Sorry I can't speak english well ngakaksWill you teach your kid to speak English very early?

I think the subject is whether it would be appropriate for the children to adopt the Western culture, if I am not mistaken, rather than merely the language. To my acknowledgement, it would be easy for the children to use their English properly as an advance tool to participate in every education level. However, their surroundings - most noticeably their families - would greatly influence their perception over the East-West culture issues. The children nowadays, absorb such rapid changes in their surroundings, which would clearly result within significant advantages in shaping up their mindset. They would adjust, mix, combine, thus, create their own terms in adopting this "Westernization" without ever disregarding their own "roots".

I would say, "Yes, it would be such a good idea to teach the children the whole package; by all means, let them have it all, for their own good."

Cheers,

No doubt I will, so english will be natural to him/her and hopefully will make things easier for them to learn and understand. Now if only I also can speak mandarin, ngakak..

i think it's better tell them another language like Korean, Japaneses etc
because there are too many people can speak English
so they can talk each other then

It doesnt matter to not knowing local language if you feel it's not necessary yet. As long as the person's not racist toward locals, cos racist people are shallow and retarded.

I got 2 kids, 6 & 4 years old. I put them to kindergarden that using english as the main language (and they also learning mandarin).and my plan is my kids will continue their education on school that using english as a primer langunge. At home we usually use bahasa indonesia, so they also can know bahasa. I'm sure that when they grow up, they will able mastering both languages.

Though I don't have any kids yet, I think I'll teach them bilingual. Say, they can speak English with me, and they can speak Indonesian with their father. Even, I'll perhaps teach them another language \)

I would suggest parents to teach their kids with one language properly before adding a second language. I mean, decide which one goes first; which language is the main priority.
I feel sad for those toddlers who can't even write/speak properly in Indonesian yet are already struggling with English.

If they are to be raised in an environment where English is the main language, u need not hesitate to teach them English as early as u can. (At least the closest circle a.k.a the big family including uncles, aunties, grandparents, cousins, close relatives etc. can speak english well)

But if they're not, keep in mind that majority of the people surrounding the kid don't use or even understand English. You wouldn't want to keep the kid caged in his own little world, would you? D
