In the last couple of years there hasn’t been a fixed timetable as for our English usage. There used to be a daily/weekly routine when E. was little but now life has become a little more spontaneous … or shall I say chaotic?
There are 3 fixed activities for the week and these are the following:
- Helen Doron English class with L.
- Mums’ English Club with both kids
- E.’s nanny’s visit
What you see above is the plan, however, several times it is overwritten by illnesses, emergencies or simple laziness. I’m trying hard to include 1-2 hours of active playtime with Baby L., but if I want to be perfectly honest sometimes we go 2-3 days without any English. It makes me sad and worried about her English language development.
I was planning to take E. for a Saturday drama class that is in English but we’ve been ill quite a lot or we had to make up for the lost time at the weekend so I decided to postpone this activity for September.
My hope is to find another nanny for Baby L. as our Canadian nanny only comes to play with E.
I clearly remember the time when E. was as little as Baby L. now and A., our British nanny at that time came to play baby games with her. Such a vivid and lovely memory. I’d like L. to experience the same.
I was checking sitters.hu and also contacted 3 of them but I haven’t received any replies yet. Still hopeful.
So that’s all about our English activities for the year.
