Celebrating and learning Chinese and Korean on Father’s Day
In our family, my Korean-American husband speaks only English with our children, while I speak both Chinese and English with them.
He does speak and read a little bit of Korean, so I wanted to translated these printable Father’s Day neckties to include this heritage language.
Even though he cannot understand Chinese, my kids will make cards in all languages for him and translate as needed. I’m so grateful that he is 100% supportive about raising multilingual children!
贺卡 / 賀卡 (hè kǎ / greeting cards) are also a fun way to review relevant vocabulary and practice reading and writing!
