    Smile Mandarin playdate in the midlevels

    Hi

    I am a Singaporean stay-at-home mum with a 2.2yo daughter. I always try to speak to her in mandarin but she would only reply me in English most of the times. I guess it is only natural as her friends are mostly English speaking and she goes to a English speaking school too.

    That is why I would love to seek out Singaporean or other mandarin speaking mums so that we can arrange for playdates. Hopefully with more exposure of mandarin, our kids can learn the language well.

    Anyone interested?
    Peipei

    Hi, can I join you two? I lived in Singapore 3 years, just moved to HK. I speak mandarin to my 2.5 years old daughter all the time. So she understands me very well. I live in Mid-levels too.
