Default is it too early to learn...

A while back, I posted the birth of our grand daughter in Canada. Ayesha was just in time for the birth.

Two days back, I caught Ayesha teaching the same girl, the intricacies of writing right to left, as opposed to left to right which she learns in day care in Montreal...

Of course, she is beginning to learn 3 languages..Arabic, French and English.
I suggest she learn a fourth..Mandarin.

An excellent repertoire!

Wondrous!

And a wondrous photo.

It is of course not too early to learn these things.

In fact, she probably knows them already, but just needs coaching in how to express that in a way that we poor adults can comprehend.

Remind us of her name and how old is she now?

Best regards,

Doug

There is no better picture a grandfather can see! I enjoy this immensely!

These are our future!

Fahim

The beauty is in her eyes. She is looking and learning, Fantastic catch my friend! Also I love that sepia/beige thing you got going on- So soft, befits the photo!

Doug, Asher, Nicolas, James and Charlotte...wonderful to see my friends together!!
Thank you all for your comments.

Her name is Jana ( a very loose translation of this word found in Surah Yaseen of the Holy Koran would be ' the fruits of one's hard work...).

She is a 1.5 years old.

Much appreciated.

Well I have three little grandsons to choose from!

She will have lots of suitors. Meanwhile there is a huge adventure of childhood with so much to learn about herself, her family and the entire galaxy!

Beautiful photographs of a beautiful child. I think she is not too young, they are like sponges when the are that young. As long as there are no tests or pressure, then give her all got!
