    • Upgrade His BM Vocabulary

      I am trying to upgrade Tim’s BM Vocabulary. I got him a Oxford BM-English dictionary. I need to teach him how to search for words in the dictionary. Besides that, I do a lot of reading with him in BM. However he is not very good at remembering BM words. I won’t say he has a poor memory because he can remember every alien in Ben 10. I wished I can turn BM words into alien.

      I am happy that Maths and Science is in English because he definitely has no problem in it. The funny thing is he has problem in spelling English words but not BM words. He can spell the BM words without knowing the meaning. I believed BM words are easier to spell.

      I am trying to find more BM books for him to read. How I wished there are Peter and Jane in BM. If you know any interactive BM CD/VCD ROM, let me know. I got the Unik Interactive VCD-ROM on Science, Math and English for primary school. It is very good and even now Emily is also learning from it.

      Tim will be having is first exam in March 3rd and 4th, aiks that is next week. I guess this weekend, I need to help him with his revision.

    1. Is he strong in suku kata?

    2. i never hv to worry about BM coz MIL and maid speaks Malay to my children. but when it comes to reading, my Belle will spell the word out using the English phonic; sounds just like angmoh reading in Malay! so funny!

    3. shoppingmum: He has no problem with his suku kata and reading BM but he just don’t know the meaning of the word.

      There is really no shortcut to being good in any language….except to read a lot. And if you don’t speak that language at home, it takes a longer time for the words to stick in their memory. Having said that my boys read almost only ‘English’ storybooks. I guess having a maid at home helps them pick up BM vocab faster.

    5. maybe post pic of aliens to each words for him to remember?

    6. 1st exam in primary schl. All the best, Tim!

    7. Fortunately my girl has no exam this term so I can relax. Hahaha. Where did you get that VCD Rom?
