“It all started about a decade ago, when my four-year-old nephew joined a kindergarten. He was born and raised in Malaysia. Usually at the end of the day, I would ask him what you learned in school today. He usually recited the rhymes and said the names of the days, months, birds and animals in three different languages, which are Bahasa Malay, Mandarin (the local languages of Malaysia) and English”.
