Clayton passed Level Two in BaoBei!

Today, DH came back with another update from Clayton's Mandarin class, BaoBei - Clayton had passed Level Two! This piece of news came as a real surprise and I was finding it hard to believe as it wasn't long that he had cleared Level One.

This means that he knows more than 200 Mandarin characters - don't ask me anything more cos' I'm still wondering what are the other 100 characters added to his list.

It's amazing how little minds can absorb and learn like a sponge. Can't wait to get the stack of cards from BaoBei at the end of the month.

*Bao Bei in Mandarin means 'precious' and 'treasure'.. that is the name of the Mandarin class that Clayton goes to.

That's quite a lot of words...mine only know a few Chinese words. Hmmm...time to buck up.

Btw, your skin looks really good! Must be due to all the organic stuff you've been consuming huh?

You are right, kids pick up fast. My Ryan only spoke English at home and did not know a single Chinese word. After I sent him to Chinese based preschool, he spoke fluent Mandarin in 3 months.

Sesame: my skin? No lah, freckles and brown spots everywhere around eye area - any tips for that or not?

Immoms: Ya.. it's amazing how how fast they learn - good and bad stuff. That's why gotta keep an eye lo...

Ladies: Thanks for dropping by!
