Thanks so much for the thoughtful responses mamas!
Also, we're hoping to take frequent, extended trips to Chile to visit family in the future (my ideal would be to get into teaching and have my summers free so we could go every-other summer or something like that, provided DH's work situation is flexible) I think the trips will help a lot, because very few people in Chile speak English.
Wife to DH from Mexico, and mother to DD (01/10); DS (09/11); and one on the way (03 or 04/14)
I am a native speaker of English but want my child to speak another language in addition to it. I speak a little Spanish, but have become interested in learning Italian lately. So, my little one and I are both learning a new language at the same time with books and music and videos from the library and the internet. Our favorite programs so far are Professor Toto DVDs (search for them online - we have Italian, but they also have other languages). There is one DVD in English and one in Italian, and this is working great for us! We also just got the CD-ROM by Transparent Language "Before You Know It" - it is AWESOME for learning the basics AND has flashcards, photos, pronunciation, etc. We are speaking both English and Italian to one another and I feel this is a great way to do things right now. Perhaps later we will both go through a more formal local class together but the Professor Toto DVDs combined with the Transparent Language "Before You Know It" CD-ROM are a HUGE lifesaver for me!
