Well, of course I will, if I have children. Why not? Nowadays, English is so important. About the manners, it's depend on how you taught your children. \)

Of course I will.. \)

But to call some elder people, we need to teach our children to call them in appropriate ways, such as grandma (for example: po-po or nai-nai, or oma, etc)..

So, they can master English, but still know the family culture. I think this is important..
Some of my kindergarten students also can speak English fluently, but when they speak to their family/relatives, they can use the appropriate language.. D

no I wont, maybe i will teach my kid about english when they're 7 years old, like what my mother did to me

yes of course its easier for children to learn new language than older people, so i would introduce them to english as early as possible . We are in a global world and being more competitive every day its an advantage for someone who can master english and other major languages like mandarin or maybe korean :P

I think I will do what my parents used to: provide english books and magazines at home without pushing my kids or making it an obligation for them to read. Kids are mostly attracted by colors and pictures. So I can picture myself buying english books and magazines that are filled with pictures and colors because the first thing to do is: making my kids attracted to these mediums Yb

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

PK


I will teach my children to speak English as early as I teach them Indonesian. I will teach them both, Indo and English, because my future husband is a Western. lol. I'm just kidding. (but I wish I could marry a Western) malu

Nowadays, preschool teach English to children.
My cousin attends preschool when she is around 2 years old and she can speak a little English like colors, animals, numbers, etc.

Her parents even teach her hakka language hammer:

It's a common now, not an advantage anymore but a must.

Just what I thought exactly D

I myself is in an english-speaking society with all foreign teachers and whatsnot and most my cousins can speak both english and indonesia well since little age. So why not teach my children how to speak english? It's easy actually if you put your child to an international school. In school the teacher will teach in english and your child will also speak english with his/her friends. In home, you speak bahasa with him/her. I'm also from java heritage and I can understand and speak a bit of javanese, not to fluent thought.
And I also wish to teach my kids france, spanish, italian, russian, >chinese-- depend on what my kids want. My criteria is that they could speak at least 5 languages.

In my opinion, it's very important to teach our children English as early as we can, even he / she is still a baby.
0 - 4 years are golden years that children capability to memorize something / words in the top capacity

After that 4 - 8 year still high capability of memorizing

then after that the capability of memorizing will decrease, on the other hand, logic capability increase...

As a guy who grew up overseas, I can tell u some of my experience when I came back to Indo.

I have difficulties on Indo vocab, words that are rarely used, I have problems addressing people(cik, om, mbak, pak), I have problems identifying whether people is a Indo islander or Chinese and my family find me rude and too straight forward sometimes. I feel that the country is very religious and does not do much good deeps on the streets anyway.(Im a free thinker/atheist and I almost got bashed up for saying that in public and is forced to choose a religion in KTP) I find it strange that no one here greet each other much(good morning, hows ur day etc...) BUT u have to say "makan yach" or they will be pissed(my dad was complaining why didnt I say "makan pah" the other day)

I can speak Indo just fine provided there is no rare words, I can speak jawa a little and understand fully. And after a few months here, I learned how to address people and be more "sopan". But I still have a hard time differentiating whether an individual is an Indo islander or chinese and sometimes address them wrongly(calling a chinese mbak etc)

No hate intended \)

For me, I will teach my kid English immmediately. But, I won't let my kids grow up in another country. (no offense) but I think Indonesia has a great culture and I want my kids learn our culture but still think globally.
