Does anyone have any experience in raising multilingual children? Could you share your experience?
I have a child, a boy, he's 1 year old now. My wife speaks only Ukrainian to him and I speak Russian and English (one week I speak only Russian, next week - only English, and so on).
The main problem is that I'm not a native English speaker and my English knowledge is only theoretical. I've never lived in any English-speaking country. Moreover, I've never been to any English-speaking country, though I feel pretty confident speaking and writing in English. How do you think - is it all right to teach my son English as "native" under such circumstances?
I'm also a bilingual child, my father always spoke Ukrainian to me and my mother always spoke Russian. Now I try to raise a trilingual child, I'm not sure whether it could be successful.
I find this site very helpful:
I'd appreciate your links, opinions. I'd be grateful for sharing your experience if any.
