    Learning Habitat/ any good bilingual education

    Is anyone's child enrolled in Learning Habitat. I am interested in the place because it says it offers bilingual education. I do know that most of the students are Chinese witha round 10% foreigners mainly consisting of Japanese. Can anyone give me more information about the place.

    My son is now 1 year and 8 months old. I want to find a good pre-school for him (nursery class). I defintely would like him to learn Putonghua or Cantonese but also have a strong English language ability as his first language is English.

    Any suggestions would be helpful
    Thanks

    My son is studying at LH Hunghom school. A number of pupils are non-Chinese, e.g. Japanese and some are Taiwanese. The teachers are very caring. My son cried for a while on the 1st day of school (by his own). And then he could follow the teacher's instruction during the day. I was very surprised because he was shy in front of strangers. And he could enjoy the school life very much.
    They have 2 class teachers in a class (1 Chinese + 1 Native English Teacher) and 1 teaching assistant. For AM pre-nursery class, they have 28 pupils in a class. For PM one, they are stilling accepting new students.

    ^^^^^ this

    wow, is that where the priorities lie? what a horrible way to get kids interested in learning - cranking the pressure up at age 5. I understand that for local children, this is part of the system, but still depressing.
