"...the Lord giveth no commandments unto the children of men, save he shall prepare a way for them that they may accomplish the thing which he commandeth them." 1 Nephi 3:7
I wish I could come over for supper and ask her what "Foo" is. Sometimes coming from an "outsider" brings more change then coming from mom.
I agree Lynnea! Sissy needs some same age English speaking friends. Her language would tighten up quickly. Other 16 year old girls would be a good influence in this case.
Hi there! Long time lurker. I'm sure you're aware, but may I reiterate that this is a pretty typical Chinese accent. Very few of my Chinese relatives say the end of words... hard ending consonants just doesn't exist in the language. Even my cousin who moved here at age 11 and is perfectly well adjusted, and with majority English speaking friends, still has a strong accent and grammar issues. They're perfectly understandable though inaccurate. My Chinese, on the same token, still suffers from grammar and accent issues, despite a solid year dedicated to immersive learning.Edit: Having said this, if you only used this as an illustration of the learning difficulties, like you mention in the later post about APD, then feel free to disregard some of this. Good luck. Virtual hugs for your struggles. I'm glad that your girls have someone like you on their team.
