This storyboard does not have a description.
This is Eric and Jane. They are both from China, where they met each other. Their decision to emigrate to the U.S. is mainly for a better life and also their marriage.
A few years after marriage, they finally have a child. Chinese was the only language spoken in the household. Both Jane and Eric agrees that their child should go to China, so his grandmother to take care. The parents are planning to find a job to work for money.
Already at the age of 5, the child is attending elementary school. His parents tells him to behave well in school and that he'll be successful in the future. Even after all these years, Eric and Jane still struggle with English.
Good morning teacher. Are we going to do anything fun today?
Unlike many other immigrant children, this child learned to speak fluent English pretty quickly.
The Child's parents are proud of him for always bringing home good grades. They still have high hopes for his future.
Unfortunately, the boy's parents didn't learn to speak English. After all, they're still immigrant parents who came to the U.S. not knowing anything. Now they can only encourage their son to work hard to not be like them in the future.
