Learning Tagalog

Yes, I am having a hard time teaching my youngest daughter to understand Tagalog or speak our mother tongue. I guess it is my fault because I let her speak in English when she was a little and did not give any attention that somehow it can affect her study. I just realized it now when I transferred her to this school.

Unlike in her previous school, the teachers in Filipino will just translate the question during the exam to her. However, with this school since it is a standard school, they will not adjust for their students. They need to understand and at least answer it in Tagalog the best that they can. My youngest daughter was not able to understand anything on their essay question and so she wrote, “I could not understand the question”. When I learned about it, I was so pissed since we did our best to study the night before. She was able to answer with multiple choice and fill in the blank except the essay and their exam is almost essay.

Thus, last 2 nights we were doing extra effort with it. I let her read “Ang pagdating ni Magellan sa Pilipinas”. Of course, since she could not understand every word of it, she resisted everything. I explained but it was not enough, I need help! I already speak Tagalog to her, there are words that she was able to understand but still could not speak to it.

I research online what are the best ways to teach the kids in speaking Tagalog and I was able to find this video:

 

I’ll be checking this one later, I might be downloading some tutorial in you tube. I hope this could help.

Past Time

Whenever I and my kids are just at home, we either just watched movies in Netflix or doing Karaoke but recently we just could not do the latter because our microphone is busted.

This past time is actually could save everybody’s bucks. You can keep your budget right if you can watch movies at home.  You know how much is the movies nowadays especially if the movie is a blockbuster. When I watched a movie, I can only bring one of my kids, either Faith or Mj, I could not bring them together at the same time because I am sure I would spend more than I only supposed to spend. Thus, if you want to enjoy a movie together with the whole family, then just watch it at home.

Doing Karaoke or singing together at home can be the most fun activity. Most of us I believe is always a singer at heart. Even though we don’t have that golden voice, as long as we can find time or a chance for us to sing, we just gladly took the opportunity. Buying a new mic that can enhance our voice would be a nice idea and of course with a good component as well. On the other hand, the other day my sister just brought me a new microphone and right away, we sang our heart out.

We are also into playing some music instrument and Mj always finds a way to learn some piece. And recently she was able to find a way for our piano to play, she did it with the cord of our laptop, she plugged it in our piano and it works.
