When I first decided to teach my son Chinese (and later Arabic), I was terrified, to say the least. I had more questions than I could handle and the thought of trying to find language resources for him kept me up all night. Maybe you had the same worries or questions that I had, and perhaps, in this blog, I can shed some light on what I did to get over the language anxiety hump.

If you’re like me, you’ve invested tons of time and money into teaching your child a second language. So, the question becomes, how will you document their progress? When my son was a toddler, he would come home with fun crafts or coloring pages in Chinese. As any mom would do, I tried to save every little piece to help him practice the words and for me to keep an eye on what he was learning and mastering.
