“The Real Housewives of Atlanta” star Kandi Burruss wants nothing but the best for her son. From swimming lessons to his world traveling, Burruss’ toddler Ace Wells Tucker is no stranger to expanding his knowledge.
So it’s no surprise then that the 2-year-old is learning to count in Mandarin at his school.
“Check out my little Ace learning how to count in Mandarin,” Burruss wrote on Instagram Tuesday, June 19. “He goes to an international school & they start teaching the children at age 2. Half the school day is with his teacher that speaks to him in Mandarin & the other half of the day is in English. He loves the school! @acewellstucker.”
Fans instantly ate up the clip of the RHOA star’s youngest child counting from 1 to 10 in the Chinese language.
“Educate, educate, educate!!!”
“😭😭😭 I love Ace! Thank you for sharing him with us 💜💜💜.”
“See this is the level of parenting and innovative forward thinking that every parent should be constantly striving towards ❤❤❤ Ace is already ahead of the game and he’s too young to even comprehend why 🧡👏🏾🙌🏾🙏🏾.”
“This is a wonderful necessity to be able to afford. Money well-spent👏🏽 #AWHOLENEWWORLDINHISREACH.”
“@kandi good choice! Plus, Japanese is ten times easier. I’ve been learning/speaking Japanese since I was a kid. I gave up on Mandarin at the very start! It’s so hard. 😂”
“It’s the most difficult language to learn. I moved to Taiwan 5 months ago and I am still struggling. Big ups to Ace 👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾.”
However, one fan questioned why the singer didn’t have her son learn an African language, since he’s descendant from the motherland.
“Very smart idea but why not an African language to someday communicate with our people✊🏾who need a lot of help understanding that white people are evil devils and are not to be trusted and we need to regain our empire.”
