Counting In English and Spanish part 1
I didn't mean to teach her spanish language but she learns it from TV, as she enjoys watching Dora The Explorer. I appreciate that Dora is trying to teach kids another language which is good since we want Azumi to be a multi-ligual child.
As of now, we are consistent in raising her to be an English-Japanese bilingual child and eventually teach her Tagalog. My husband likes the idea of learning the english language right along with our little girl. I speak to her only English while Hubby talks to her in Japanese but sometimes switches between the two tongues lol (since he's also learning english).
Right now she is getting a good foundation for English which she will need in communicating with our (my) family who doesn't speak in Japanese. Some of my oldies here are worried that our daughter might have a language confusion.
Hmmm I heard people say that the best time to introduce another language to a child is while they are babies.
What do you think? Thoughts and opinions about raising a bilingual/multilingual child are very much welcome :)
