Wish your kids could speak Hmong?
It's not as hard as you think!
Here are 4 simple steps to see your kids speaking Hmong:
1. Get Hmong children's books and Hmong flash cards.
There are more and more products being created to help children learn the Hmong language. If you can't afford the products, you can also check out a local library if you live in a community with a large Hmong population. For example, the Saint Paul Public Library has a growing Hmong children's book collection :)
2. Read Hmong children's books to your kids daily.
Children (and humans in general) learn best through repetition. Make it a normal part of your daily routine with your children to read to them Hmong children's books. For example, every night before I put my daughters to bed, I read to them. They not only expect it, they look forward to it!
3. Have your kids watch Hmong YouTube videos.
I know for a fact that your kids are watching YouTube. That's ok! My daughters watch it once in a while as well. However, one thing I try to encourage is to have them watch Hmong videos so they are exposed to the Hmong language more often. Having more opportunities to hear the language will help them develop an ear for the Hmong tones.
4. Persist and don't give up!
