MAKE A STATEMENT Language puts kids in touch with culture Linguists: Jamie Harding, left, and Jay Brixton, both 5, attended the first children's Chinese language class held at Nelson Library. Photo: ELESHA EDMONDS By ELESHA EDMONDS Jasmin Malcolm is proud of her new skill -- she can count to 10 in Mandarin. The 7-year-old took part in Nelson's first Chinese language class for children at Nelson Library on Monday. Fifteen children aged 3 to 8 attended the class which teaches the basics of Mandarin in games and song. Nelson mums Piri Lin and Lil- lian Li-Kurtovic started the class to encourage other Chinese mothers to pass on the language to their children. We had an idea about how we wanted our children to grow up and we thought bilingual would be best,'' Piri said. I guess most of the mums [we know] had the same idea, so we thought let's do something. They want their children to be connected with Mandarin- speaking people.'' Piri, who has lived in New Zealand for seven years, wants her children to grow up under- standing their Chinese heritage. Language is always the most important part of the culture . . . it's part of our people, part of us.'' Piri said her 5-year-old son, Jamie Harding, spoke English but was now learning Mandarin. My partner is from England and he speaks English. So I speak mostly Chinese to my son and he picks it up from there,'' she said. He's been great and has been trying to talk to my parents in Mandarin over Skype.'' Susan Collins, who taught English in China for three years, brought her granddaugh- ter, Alex Mallory, 7, to the class. I think it's easier for chil- dren to be bilingual than for grandmas,'' she said. I found it very hard, but chil- dren will pick it up a lot easier.'' Chinese language classes are open for children aged 3 to 8 are held at Nelson Library on Mondays from 3.30pm to 5pm.
