Lee Kuan Yew advised Chinese S’poreans to speak Chinese at home – 06Oct2011

Chinoiseries 《汉瀚》

李光耀: “反正在学校一定学得到英语, 所以要在家里讲华语。”

他年轻时没把握机会学好华语, 35岁从政才”饿补”福建话”, 却不是普通话口语, 然后虽然终身不倦的努力学习, 92岁在家上了”最后的华文课”, 才进院离世。

他的”艰苦”经验证明学习语文 (尤其母语华文)不是靠天资 — 李光耀的聪明举世无双, 他谦虚说只有 IQ 120 — 而是趁儿童脑袋发育, 是学习语文的黄金时期。

他已离去, 留下此忠言警告新加坡父母 — 尤其讲英语的家庭 —
“不听老人言, 吃亏在儿女”!
