Ok thank you 😊
How have you been teaching yourself? I've been wanting to learn to teach my kids
I have a 3 month old son and I speak with him in Tagalog and his dad speak to him in Spanish. At first I’m a little scared cuz he might be confuse but it looks like he understand it cuz he responds every time we talk to him in 2 languages. They can learn English on tv or school.
Oh wow that’s so much great exposure for him so little!
Mexican immigrant 🙋🏽♀️ English is my second language my daughter and bf are learning Spanish
Does your husband find it easy or difficult learning since he is older..I know adults don’t catch on as fast as kids do. Also do you only speak Spanish to them ?
Have you guys watched the babies documentary on Netflix? From what i understood they said when one parent speaks in English and the other in the language they want to teach its the best way
I would definitely have her speak only in Spanish to the baby and see how it goes!
I haven’t check it out, but I’m definitely going to soon! We are only English speaking, the closest person I know is my best friend who speaks Spanish.
My husband speaks both English and Spanish, and I only speak English. I am currently using an app on my phone to learn Spanish and between that and my husband it is getting easier. We use both Spanish and English with our son. He understands booths but only speaks English.
I use duolingo and it has really helped. I took it in middle school and some of high-school but couldn't remember much
I am using an app too. I took spanish in high school and only can remember the basics, but reading it is so much easier than hearing it for me 🤦🏾♀️
I speak french and Wolof (a language from Senegal 🇸🇳) and my baby speaks both ( or understands lol, she just says several words yet). Her big sister speaks Portuguese and that’s what they use. So basically she can communicate in 3 languages, I was a little bit scared in the beginning because neuroscientists always advise us to use only one language at a time but I couldn’t help it since my husband and I use 3 languages in the house (even tho we don’t really talk to her in English, she’ll learn it in school). Babies are sponges so just practice with her she’ll catch everything. You can watch “Babies” on Netflix, some episodes talk about language, it’s very interesting.
On no they actually recommend it, they are just saying one person one language. Sorry I probably didn’t explain myself properly. For exemple, i should speak only french to her and my husband picks another one etc, so the child won’t get confused. Clearly I wasn’t able to do that lol, it’s hard to stick to only one language when you speak several, and obviously she’s alright...for now 🙏🏾😅
I’m so shocked that neurologist would say that. I thought it was actually a good thing when you teach babies multiple languages. I will definitely check that out on Netflix!
I’ve been using the app Duolingo
