    Hi Caterina,

    I just received the following reply from the HK Goethe-Institut.

    The German Speaking Protestant Church in Hongkong
    organizes german playgroups once a month: http://www.kirchehongkong.de/

    there is a german kindergarten for children that are already three years old, the kindergarten of the german stream of the German Swiss International School http://www.gsis.edu.hk/

    Thanks Rani for the Information. I have also made some enquires with the institute in Hong Kong. They are not able to recommend any German teachers who teach toddlers German. I will probably contact the playgroup, but as they only meet once a month it will not be sufficient for serious language learning.
    Does anyone know of any German software for toddlers? I myself know nothing about German, so I really have to rely on recommendations.

    Caterina,

    You can start your own playgroup. We do have a German mum here - Marta. And we met another German mum at the Matilda Toddler Group with a daughter the same age as yours.

    I don't know of any software, but there are some books and CDs for kids. Let me me know if you're interested and will send you more info.

    Caterina,
    I am German myself and have a 4 month old baby. What nationality are you? Chinese? I'd be happy to meet and talk/ play with your toddler in German if you teach my baby Chinese:-))
    If that doesn't appeal to you, there are quite a few ladies in the German Speaking Ladies Group with children of your toddler's age (www.gslg.de).

    I am just wondering if there is a reason you want your child to learn German? Is your husband German? If so, he can speak to your child in German. I think lots of people do this at home in the hope that the kids will be either bi or trilingual.

    Dear Janine,

    Thanks for your reply.
    I am a Chinese. Although Cantonese is my first language. I am fluent in Mandarin and willing to try to teach your baby either of the two dialects.

    And grateful for referring the link to me.

    I am not familiar with communicating through the chatroom. Do I leave my number here or do you have any proposal as how we can contact each other?
