BTW, reading skills are just as transferrable. I had an expat friend who was freaking out about teaching her children to read English (when they were only 5 or 6). She wanted me to give them lessons. My own kids have learned to read Slovene first, and after a year or two their English reading skills have caught right up. My older dd is a bookworm and devours books in both languages. I haven't really taught her anything, just provided lots of books and read to her every night until she didn't want me to any more.
