Hi, im a mother of 19 month old twin boys. i speak konkani and my husband speaks hindi. they understand both of us well. and they speak about 10 to 12 words but more in konkani bcoz i spend more time with them naturally. but theyll learn both eventually. its the same with all bilingual babies. and its better to introduce a 3rd language like english at 3 or 4 yrs of age , bcoz by then ur childs brain is more receptive .

Hi

I am a mother of 14 months old daughter.My mother tounge is Hindi whereas my hubby's is Marathi.I talk to her in hindi & she understands me pretty well.My inlaws,hubby and relatives talk to her in Marathi...she responds to them also.I hope she is picking up both the languages. I think u should talk to her in ur mother tounge.
All the Best..

Hi! My kid is just 11 months yaar, he just speaks the universal language all kids speaks...dadadada ...:) no english, hindi, gujrati, himachali....it'll take time...

What i told u was some research that's been done. It said that the kids who are exposed to many languages are more ANALYTICAL. So, try teaching him when he understands...Anyway, he'll learn ur language faster ...that's my personal experience... ALL THE BEST...Thankfully Ma is the same in all languages :)

Love,
Anila

Hi KH,

I'm multilingual :)...just joking!!! actually my mom is gujrati, my dad is a bihari, i have done my schooling and engineering in haryana, i married a himachali, and work in Punjab...WHEW!!!

What about u? What language do u speak, and what language does ur husband speak? In any case, I have an advice...teach ur child both languages. He'll grow a smarter kid.

Regards
Anila

Hi Anila,
My mother tongue is Tulu and we also converse in Kannada at my place and my husband's mother tongue is konkani.We've been speaking with her in Kannada and Konkani.She is also exposed to English.Which languages did you teach your kid ? and does he speak well in the languages which you taught him/her? Did he/she have confusion while learning 2 languages ? How old is your kid ?

Do not worry, some children take more time to attain developmental milestones. Keep interacting with your child to encourage speech development. If at all you are feeling concerned you can consult a pediatrician. ... - Shama [View Message]
