I guess that was the tipping point to the continued intention to do something about raising M as bilingual. I would actually love for her to speak French and Spanish as well but we will have to see about that. For now she understands a lot of what I say to her in Greek, she knows “pou einai…” (where is…) and various items. She knows good morning and good night etc but since she is not really speaking English yet either I am not quite sure how much she understands.
We will see. So far it has been easier than I thought and it makes me want to listen to more Greek music, read Greek and watch more Greek movies. We are a work in progress.
Here is an article on the benefits of bilingualism.
