|Picture on left my 7 yr. old. Picture on right when he was 4 yrs. old and we started our bilingual journey.
Reflecting on our journey, I look at my 7 yr. old and remember when he was a preschooler who barely turned 4 yrs. old claiming he knew Spanish. Seriously, singing Dora’s song of the numbers does not constitute to being bilingual. Ha! At the time that was so far from the truth! Now, I know without any doubt or hesitation when he says, “Mommy, I know Spanish!” He really does. Especially since it’s also his secret language.
Does your child have a secret language? What is your child’s motivator? As a parent what’s your motivator?
