Bi Lingual Babies ?

So life as an expat here is life changing. It opens your eyes to a much larger world where Reality TV, Celebrity and False Eye Lashes are non existent.

One of the interesting thoughts is that of language learning. Most people here speak at least two languages, and many of my colleagues speak 4,5,6 and one guy speaks 7 fluent languages !

This is down to hard work and a different mentality, but also the upbringing at home. One of my colleagues talks to his baby in Portuguese, whilst the mother talks to the baby in German. The 3 year old understands both.

Perhaps something to consider for my boy…
