Angélica at Modern Familia asked me to write a guest post focusing on the language development of bilingual children. Slide on over there to check out more on this topic!
Here’s just a taste:
I remember my first summer working at a migrant school and watching in amazement as a tiny three year-old girl sat between two friends, cheerfully carrying on one conversation in perfect English, and another in perfect Spanish, her shiny dark ponytail flipping as she turned her head from one side to the other. I had probably taken Spanish classes for about as long as she had been alive, but knew she had already attained a goal I am still far from reaching! Raising your child with the ability to speak two languages is an amazing gift. Here is some information that might help you as you begin this great undertaking.
