PhotoGal Posted February 5, 2012 Share Posted February 5, 2012 Hi all, I'm wondering if anyone here is teaching a third language (so one native language - English in our case - along with two foreign languages). I studied a second language (Spanish) in high school and then learned some of a third (Chinese) as an adult - and I often get confused. It is like the two languages are being held in the same place in my brain, kwim? So I can think of how to say part of what I want say in one language and another part in the other language. Just wondering if anyone has advice to help my kids not be as confused as I am. :D Right now they are fairly kid-conversational in one language (Chinese) and just starting another (Spanish). The languages are pretty different, so hopefully that will help them not get too confused. But maybe there is something I can do to help. I don't really talk to them in Chinese because my tones would be all off, so they mostly only hear/speak it at Chinese school. I'm hoping keeping each language in a different environment will help. Any advice? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
