Every since my daughter was 2 years old, our kids have attended a Spanish-immersion preschool in Austin, called Escuelita del Alma. Our goal, in enrolling the kids there, was to have them grow up bilingual. My husband and I are, well, unilingual – and sometimes, maybe not even that.
We had better hopes for our children.
And, so far, so good on that plan. Our daughter is in 2nd grade and I now have a high school student come over about 4 hours a week to continue to speak Spanish to her while they play. My boys attend the school now and it’s been fun to watch them learn to speak. Some words are always in English and other things are always referred to in Spanish.
For example, my three-year-old is yet to say “milk” – it’s still always “leche.” “Water” is always “Agua.”
The conversation I find the most amusing now, though, is with my 22 month old. This is how it usually goes.
Maybe he can’t say the word, but he certainly knows what it means!
