    Thanks mommyboy.

    I finally give up the desire of buying Disney's World of English. First because of the money and secondly I find my son is able to converse in English short phases with me before his two years old. He says "mama please help". "give it to me please", "play with me", "it's new" and he always says "sit down please"....etc

    Funny is that he is able to switch to Cantonese when grandies talk to him. Anyway hubby and I will continue to speak English to him, despite a little concern of our Chinlish (Chinese English).

    speaking another language fluently is ALWAYS an asset, no matter what kind of job you wish to have in the future.

    I think it’s quite common for children here to acquire 2 languages (Cantonese plus English) simultaneously from birth and a third language (Putonghua) early on in their childhood (through pre-school education). Bilingual families in the West usually adopt the one-parent one-language strategy (shown to be effective) but in HK such a clear distinction does not seem to be the norm. To nurture true bilinguals, the one-parent two-language strategy may not be an easy way out but if the parent speaking 2 languages could minimize mixed code (the typical Cantonese base language with English lexical words), it could surely reduce possible confusion on the part of the child.

    i would never fork out that much money on such learning materials when this can be achieved at home through other tvs programees, dvds, and isnt this type of learning what schools are for? Sorry, just cant understand the hype of this magic english disney.. just my 2 cents worth!
