Mums and dads ,
I would like share with you our new Turkish Class’s experience
My Daughters, 5 old Lydia and 7 years old Olivia doesn’t speak or understand Turkish at all. We speak in English at our house-hold. Our mother tongue is in English. As a Turkish mum I believed in myself that I certainly can teach my children in Turkish.
I tried speak to them in Turkish a year ago and failed number of reason. ; my daughters were resisting and running away from me every time I’ve spoken to them in Turkish. I was finding very hard to deal with and I felt very sorry for them. Then all become impossible for me. I made all sorts of excuses. Of course there was never right time to teach them in Turkish – I was too comfortable in English ! It was an afford and didn’t want to make it.
