They always say that learning a second language comes easiest when you start young. But as parents, we don’t always know the best way to do this. A tutor can help, but it might only be something we think about after Junior starts primary school.
Caryn Lim, the founder of recently set up Bao Bao Home Tutor, wants to change that mindset. “We believe that babies are born with the ability to learn within the first year, and in the first few years of their lives, it is critical for language learning,” she says.
“Babies have different developmental pace and learning styles,” explains Caryn, and having a tutor or teacher over at home in a familiar environment may make it easier for your child to learn faster.
