Potato Chinese(TM) in the News!!



Ms Kok Siew Kuan wrote an article on Potato Chinese(TM) in the Shin Min Daily News. I thought she did a great job. The article was succinct and true to the interview I gave, even on the more technical aspects of learning psychology. She left out however, the notion that Potato Chinese is very tedious and unpleasant... and NOT recommended if one has the time and the family circumstances for more pleasant methods (i.e., parents know Chinese or are prepared to hire high quality Chinese input).

We did Potato Chinese(TM) because Little Boy was going into P5. We had no time. We needed very very spectacular gains in little time. If I had had time, I would have used other ways to spare my son the agony of Potato Chinese(TM).

Never underestimate the humble potato. It is not flashy in look and lives its whole life underground. However, once put to work, it holds the very ingradient that powers our body. Well done, my friend!

Wen-Ai: I dunno that appearing in a small article tucked away in a newspaper counts as famous... but I would be happy to autograph your book!
