    Hi, Omar is bi-lingual. He understands both Arabic & English & he uses proper words from both languages. He chooses the easier word from each language & uses it.

    English and Spanish for us!

    My FOB's family is Mexican and they are bilingual, so everytime Kenneth is around them they speak Spanish, I'm not very good at Spanish but I'm trying to learn! It's vital he learns Spanish where we live, there are soooo many people who don't speak English here! :flower:

    Marianne will hopefully be bilingual with English and British Sign Language. BSL was my first language because although I am hearing my parents are both deaf. I'd like her to be able to communicate with my parents too. And it's a useful skill to have.

    That's fantastic! Sign language is such an important language that people often forget (I have hearing impairment myself and learned ASL when I was very young but did not continue it after my corrective surgery - regret it!!)

    Yup, pretty much all of the schools and playgroups round here are bilingual as it's a very strong Welsh speaking area....my Welsh is really bad as I'm not from round here originally, but am hoping Harry will be able to teach me when he's older :haha: and I'll more than likely pick up a fair bit from the other mums :D

    We have no clue, but wherever it is we plan to teach that to our LO. Be it Italian (I'm wishing lol) or Japanese. :)
