Can an interactive multimedia approach to another language help parents raise multilingual children?
I speak to my children only in French and everyone else, including their father, speaks to them in English. Obviously, English is not a source for concern. Our daughter, Soleil, can express herself in English extremely well. On occasion she will speak franglais, throwing in just one word of French to an otherwise entirely English conversation. Our son, Geo, doesn’t speak much yet, but he is apt to use more French words than his sister. We’re wondering if this is because Geo was exposed to French from birth, whereas Soleil didn’t start hearing French until she was 6 months old.
