Re: Anyone raising their kids bilingual?
My son just turned a year and isn't really talking yet - but we're a bilingual family (attempting to be trilingual). I'm American and speak English, my husband is Lebanese/Canadian and speaks English/Arabic and we're living in Quebec, Canada and are both trying to learn French. DH knows a little, but I don't know any at all, and Quebec is a French-speaking province. We plan on staying here a while, so we're trying to learn the language to teach our children.
I guess we don't really have much experience yet. DS hears English more than anything, so I'm not sure if he understands much but the basics in Arabic. I cannot speak Arabic but can understand a little.
We're just kinda flying by the seat of our pants with all this.
