Teach your langauge to your children otherwise don’t complain!


People of the blogsphere, heed my advice. If you are from country A and decide to live in country B so that your kids grow up in country B and never went back to country A AND you also don’t teach your children about your culture AND also do not teach them much about YOUR language then don’t complain if they take country’s A language as their own. Its NOT their fault that they have to use English subtitles to watch a movie or a TV drama in their supposed mother tongue. Ok? got it? Are we all clear? Kapish? May Allah guide us all. Ameen.

Regarding the picture, I was looking for a picture of a furious looking Korean girl and Kim Seon-Ah here fits the bill. The poster is from the Korean Movie, “She’s on Duty.” Here is the synopsis of the movie from IMDB.

“The film deals with a boisterous undercover female cop who gets sent to an all-girl’s school in order to get close to a criminal in hideout by befriending his teenage daughter. The general set up and the fighting antics of the female cop play close resemblance to Stephen Chow’s classic Fight Back to School.”

Addition #1:
P.S: How do I know this? From experience of course!

Addition #2:
Since its not obvious to some people then let me be more clear substitute country A with Korea and substitute country B with the United States. Do you get it now people? Kapish?

    how do you know what ? the film synopsis or Country A to B transition ?

    p.s complain of the kids taking up country A’s language would be most pleasureable for the parents , country B’s is another point

    No “lower the gaze” message in this post. 😛

    mE, if I knew the synopsis by experience then that would make me a cool secret agent but my life is more mundane. :p

    stinger, lower your gaze may be counter productive in Kim Seon-Ah’s case. 🙂

    Hehehe… sometimes too many languages can be confusing.

    Bubbles, The number of languages does not distress me but rather false expectations ….
