My Comments:

For me this have been a valuable and insightful book as being a Banana Mom myself, I was undecided on which school to put my boy in when he starts primary one.

Naturally I would want him to learn an extra language but will he be able to cope with all the workload that Chinese school are famous for? Apart from that there are a whole load of pros and cons flying around.

From what I read here, Chinese Primary school is not that scary if there are support from the school side and the parents side.

I find that the part about school orientation, examination and tuition have been very helpful. Chapter 5 was very "scary" for me as there was a load of pros and cons listed there ...some of which I have not even thought of .

But overall, it had helped me . At least get a rough picture of what to expect should my son goes to Chinese Primary school.

Thank you very much to the author, Mimi Koay
