Chinese school - Cantonese or Mandarin?
I have enrolled my 4yo son for Mandarin (simplified) this summer.
Now I am having second thoughts and want to enroll him in Cantonese instead because I speak Cantonese - although its barely passable- but at least I can understand and carry a basic conversation. I do not speak any Mandarin at all.
Originally, I thought Mandarin would be a better choice because more and more people are learning it and his friends at day school speak mandarin, but how much will he actually learn if no one at home speaks it is my concern. Where as Cantonese, he can at least try to talk to me at home.
Maybe he should learn Cantonese first? then pick up mandarin in the future?
Any parents have advice?
