This is very encouraging. I have a child who loves language, too, but is still learning to read well. I've been feeling stressed because I'd like to give her the gift of a foreign language before high school, but I am not fluent in anything. And it's been hard to find materials that are engaging for her and not boring (either over her head or below her level.) Thanks for sharing the success story of your child. I have a "one and only" right now, so I can't learn from her other siblings!
