    I'm new to this forum and would like to share my experience: I bought a poster with Chinese characters and put it on the wall where the whole family can see it all the time (e.g. kitchen). This proves to be very effective as the children are regularly asking questions about the characters. Or I would start a topic and use these Cantonese words for example.
    I'm raised in a Cantonese speaking family (my Chinese writing/readjng is poor though) and married to my Caucasian husband. I try to teach my children Cantonese but it's not easy as Cantonese os not the first language in our family. This way I try to keep using Cantonese vocabulary.

    This is a great idea and thanks for sharing. Could you tell me which poster you bought - a pic of it would be helpful or just describe (to see if I have the same one or should buy it!) I guess anything to spark some interest in the language helps :)

    Sure, I can make pictures. I'm not at home now but will do when I'm back.
