First may I just say that it’s totally wonderful that you’re thinking of doing this for yourself AND your child. Over the three years that I’ve been seriously thinking of raising children I’ve been thinking that exposing your child to a second language is one of the most important things you could do as a parent! For me, giving my child a gift of a second language has been a sincere goal of mine. I never pledged to nurse until my child naturally weaned, I never said I would devote every waking second to my daughter but I have pledged to give her a second language. There, I said it; it’s on the WWW…uh oh, now I’ve got to stick to it!
Anyway, I’m also not bilingual but my daughter and I are learning German at the same time. We aren’t taking classes together but I’m learning at school and Aya is learning from me, books and from friends. When she is 3 years old she will begin school in Germany and will be immersed in the language.
She’s nagging me right now, in English…I’ll write more later,
Troll? Here's me...
