12 Back-to-School Scenarios That Give Parents and Kids Real Feelings

Does Your Child Speak Another Language?

Parlez-vous francais? Hablas español? In an age where everything is global and an international phone call is as easy as using Skype, it makes sense that people are paying more attention to their language skills. In many countries, it is normal for children to speak a minimum of two languages. President Obama encourages Spanish as a second language and thinks it might be mandatory to keep up with the rest of the world. There are preschool programs dedicated to Italian, Spanish, French, Mandarin and a host of all other languages.

So tell mommy, does your child speak other languages?

I picked yes, although she actually doesn't speak at all yet. Our native is German, but since I'm studying to be a teacher for English I thought it would be nice to give her a head start. I just bought the very hungry caterpillar today. We speak German throughout the day, but bedtime stories are usually in English.

My daughter has been taking Spanish since Kindergarten and speaks it pretty well. She also started taking Russian this year in addition to Spanish.
