Good post! I messed up on this front. When my daughter was born, her dad and I continued to speak in English and so the only language she learned was english. That's such a shame because I can speak six indian languages and yet did not think to make any one of them a dominant language during her formative years!

Now, she can understand a few phrases here and there in hindi but she always responds in english. She's learning some sentences (thanks to Bollywood) but it would all have been so much easier when she was little!


English has become the language of the world.
