To parents in the Phils: Do you talk to your kids in English? [Merged]
mytitagirl Membernanay ako in singapore, tagalog sa bahay at pag-uwi sa pinas tagalog din...sa labas ng bahay at sa school english...pinoy kasi tayo, so be proud of our language, maganda din kasi two-tongued siya at basta naman hindi tag-lish, as in kung tagalog, tagalog at kapag english-english0
We saw how our friends' communicating in and constantly exposing their kids to 2 or more languages resulted in the kids' delayed language development (more than 2 years old already, not that talkative).
So, we thought it would be good to have one language exclusively in the first 2-3 years, and then when the kid is already proficient in that one, introduce another language. Just choose one and stick to it.
We decided the first language would be Tagalog so that he would learn "po" and "opo" and the value of respect for elders. We'll introduce English later. Sarap pakinggan ng bata na marunong mag-"po" at "opo".0
BuDwEiSeR#8 DaleEarnhardtJr:Born2RaceYung cousin ko naman,ang gawa nya sa mga anak nya, she didn't talk to them in a straight english language, but she use simple terms to them,hello, sleep,mga ganon, just let them familiarize with english word.
Same naman kay JdelaCruz,yung gawa ko sa anak ko,ngayon na more than 2 years old na sya,I teach him na some simple tagalog words, even po at opo,kaya kapag humihingi sya sa akin ng banana flavor na juice, sabi nya "bananasaging"0
derecho_65 MemberWhen you talk to them in English make sure that at least you have a good commend of the language. Avoid the taglish or "conyo" talk please!!! It's so irritating to hear toddlers talking like those collegehialas!!! (im not sure of the spelling)!
My aunt in Austria (german speaking country) sees filipino parents conversing with their kids in german at home, when their kids are the one who correst them because they study in german speaking public schools and their parents are just trying to learn the language. My aunt said "kawawa ung mga bata barok namn kc german ng parents nila" And they don't get a grasp of their Filipino culture.0
we do at home. although they're also exposed to filipino from the yayas and from tv. my 2 and a half year old is very talkative and already speaks decent english and some filipino. aside from us, they're lolos and lolas and relatives speaking to them only in english, they watch a lot of tv - barney, sesame street, bear in the big blue house, blues clues, madeleine, etc..., and they get a dose of disney's magic english every day. not a few friends and relatives now think that our kids speak better english than them.0
parents, curious lang, bakit kelangan kausapin nyo ng ingles ang mga anak nyo eh may talalog naman. pwede naman nila matutunan ang ingles sa iskwelahan. don't you find it too pretentious for your family? baka matawa ibang foreigners sa inyo na nalaman pilipino kayo pero di kayo nagtatagalog. wala naman masama mag ingles. mag-ingles lang kung kinakailangan.0
Hindi naman na kasi kailangan pag-aralan pa magsalita ng tagalog eh,sabi nga ng english prof ko dati,kahit natutulog ka,you can learn how to speak tagalog.0

well for one thing, they an always learn filipino later. i prefer my kids to be better in english than in filipino since the reality is they'll be facing a very competetive world and this could give them a bit of an edge when they grow up. secondly, di magtatawa ang foreigners. in fact, mas gusto nga nila ang mga english speakers. i work in an international org with a multicultural setting and i see first hand how people prefer better english speakers. i've been to poorer countries here in asia including vietnam, laos and cambodia, and in multinational workplaces its clear that the english speakers get the better training, perks and promotions as compared to more qualified and responsible but non-english speaking employees.0
satoy, i understand your point kelangan natin ang ingles pagdating sa negosyo/komersyo. ang sa akin naman ay pagdating sa normal conversation na hindi naman kelangan mag ingles dahil pareho namang pilipino.
i've travelled some parts of europe and south east asia, sa mga nakakasabay kong travellers/tourists, pinoy lang yung mga na encounter ko na naguusap ng ingles sa isa't isa. sa aking karanasan, wala pa akong nakasabay na intsik, koreano, o hapon, lalo na yung pamilya, na nag-uusap ng ingles. yung iba pa sa kanila matagal nang naninirahan sa tate/europa.
may na-meet nga akong hapon dito sa manila na sobrang galing mag-ingles pero nippongo ang gamit niya pag kausap nya hapon at mga kapamilya nya, which really makes sense to me.

Well, that doesn't make sense to me as well. Maski dito sa office pag kaming mga pinoy ang naguusap tagalog gamit namin. Unless of course there's a foreigner in a group, in which case we use english so the foreigner won't feel out of place. Ang intention ko lang naman ay gumaling sa english ang mga anak namin. Somebody told us that it's better to teach the second language first, they can always learn Tagalog later. And when they do, we will all speak with each other in Tagalog, of course.0
I have a 3 month old baby. And as early as now, I speak to him in English. Hindi ko ikinahihiya ang lenguaheng Pilipino. Ngunit alam kong matutununan niya rin ito sa paaralan at sa kanyang mga kaibigan, yaya, atbp.
Whereas with the English language, he won't learn it as easily in school or with his friends.
I want him to be well-versed in English because I don't want him developing an inferiority complex when he grows up and finds out that he can't speak English fluently.
I have pamangkins like that. They speak barok english. Ngayon pag napapaligiran sila ng mga English speaking cousins nila at English speaking friends nila, sobrang nahihiya sila at ayaw maki-interact. Ayokong mangyari yon sa anak ko noh.0
Bakit ang nananagalog ang mahihiya? Nasaan ba tayo? Sino ba ang dapat makibagay? Siguro maliban sa wika, dapat ding itaguyod ang kaisipan na marangal ang wikang pilipino, na kung nananagalog ka, hindi ka dapat mahiya, at hindi porke nagiingglis ang isang bata, mas magaling sya kesa sa iyo.0
smilewarrior ModeratorWe were not well off when I was young. My parents came from simple backgrounds. I learned my English from Sesame Street.
We were not allowed to watch tagalog dramas and soap operas, only tagalog comedies. To this day I can't stand watching tagalog dramas and soaps. Then again, I can't stand dramas and soap operas in any language. I guess I find it hard to remove years of conditioning that I will never learn anything good from them. Funny thing though, I had to watch Tanging Yaman with some of my female friends and thought the movie was not bad at all. I won't be watching dramas often though anytime soon.
English is our second language. It's the official language in the Philippines for Commerse and Science. Learning it is more of a necessity than an option. Still, learning our national language is also important.
I could dye my hair blond, wear blue contact lenses and bleach my skin stark white but I would still be a Filipino. It's better I embrace my heritage than deny it, particularly with regards to learning to speak fluent tagalog.
If I had kids, I'd teach them straight english and straight tagalog but not taglish.0
