Designing the interiors of a house can be time consuming. Choosing the right interiors is as critical as choosing the right hardware materials used for your house. Wall designs, bathroom, door frames, lights and furnitures are something that you wouldn’t want to keep changing so choosing the best for your home is crucial. You must also choose a central theme for your home so that everything looks coordinated. When choosing cabin furniture, it would be nice if you are also using wood for other items such as tables and decorations.

I grew up in a Chinese family. My parents spoke to us in Fookienese, while in school, classmates spoke to each other in Filipino. Though we also had Chinese Mandarin classes in the afternoon. After school, I never had the chance to practice what I learned in school so I already forgot a lot of Chinese Mandarin words. Now that I have kids of my own, we speak the local language which is Filipino, but I also speak to them in English and we read a lot of English books too. I definitely want them to learn other languages too like Mandarin, Japanese, Korean and Spanish.
Here are some ways to learn another language at home aside from the usual classes:
> Read books in different languages which would expose them to the correct pronunciation and comprehension.
> Watch videos together as a family.
> Listen to songs or poems.
> Get cartoons which focuses on another language such as Dora The Explorer and Kai-Lan.
> Attend cultural events which showcases the heritage of each country.
> Go to the province or that country which uses that language which you are learning.
