editor’s note

Having grown up around two or more languages, we have some idea of the benefits it can bring. It opens up doors in other countries and allows you to more freely interact with an entirely different culture and way of life. It can also open up new business or employment opportunities abroad. Why not equip your child with the means to broaden their horizons beyond language barriers? For parents with two languages, particularly those who live in English speaking countries with English as their second language, passing on their mother tongue to their children can be a means to teach them about their culture and heritage. It’s something we try and do with our own children. There is often the worry that kids may feel confused but as we all know,…

pushing your child around: best buys

Toddlers and small children are singularly inconvenient by virtue that they need to be transported from point to point, usually by a pushchair. Designed to not only to be comfortable for the child and convenient for the parent, pushchairs have evolved to almost space-age levels of usability and performance. However, much of this also comes at a price, and in many cases, you have to weigh up the needs of your child against the depth of your pocket. Here are some of the best in the low to medium best buy category. Chicco Lite Way At a little over double the price of the Xplorer, with the Lite Way, Chicco have shown that they can meet both ends of the reasonably-priced market. Weighing just 7Kg, its light enough to be hoisted out…

should we all write in chinese?

In the future, would it be so strange to see one unified writing system for the whole world? Should there even be a universal writing system, so that no matter what language you speak or where you come from, you will always be able to understand someone through the written word? When we think about it in terms of being able to communicate with anyone in the world, whilst still speaking in your mother tongue, the prospect becomes quite exciting. However, language as we’re well aware is a complex matter. It affects identity, communication, social integration and education and development. And according to International Mother Tongue Day (this year being held on the 21st February 2018) they believe that different languages are actually under threat and even in some instances disappearing altogether. International…
