I noticed my 9 year old trailing a little behind in her vocabulary comprehension and usage in her Wordly Wise/Spelling class, granted she skipped a grade. That’s likely from reduced exposure time to English, particularly in terms of reading. So, I blocked off part of our precious Chinese lesson time for her to read more of her AR book.
That’s like heresy!
But seriously, as the child gets close to middle school, I think it is important to start closing the gap in English.
What do you think?
