My Dh and I are both English-only speakers. We both know a little French from school, and MIL was a French major in college, so she knows quite a bit more, but I wouldn't say that even she is truly fluent. Anyway, I'd really like Katie to have the chance to learn, or at least be exposed to, a second language. We have the opportunity to participate in a playgroup that is in Spanish. I don't speak Spanish at all, so we'd be learning together. Has anyone tried this, or something similar, with their toddler? How did it go? Will it be too confusing for her, since we don't speak Spanish at home at ALL? I don't want to frustrate her... I want her to have fun and learn. Is this something you'd attempt with your 18-month-old?
