I am not happy in fact I am fuming.
My daughter came home from school last week and told me that they were learning about the 2nd World War and that Japan was their topic. She complained to me that the teacher was pronouncing the language wrong and tried to tell her how to pronounce correctly, but the teacher told her to do it the ‘English way’.
The teacher then proceeded to teach the class how to do the origami Crane from a YouTube video. Again my daughter tried to show her how to do it the Japanese way, but again the teacher told her to do it as she was instructed by her.
My daughter complained to me that some of her friends knew how to pronounce the language, as I had done a presentation in her class since she was five to nine years old and that she did the crane her way and her friend thought that it was better and wanted one of hers.
I am annoyed as the teacher had a hands on Japanese person in the class that could of helped to pronounce the language the right way and who could also teach the right way to do origami.
Thinking of complaining to the school about the mistreatment of my child and that they should use the child (with the parents consent) if they are teaching things about the country that they come from.
Let’s teach the young smarter.
