Not sure if this is the right place to post this but was wondering if anyone has any advice. My OH is Dutch (speaks English like a native as he went to an international school) and we plan to raise our little one to speak both English and Dutch. While all my family-in-law (apart from my 2 year old nephew!) speak English perfectly, I think it's important not to lose that part of the wee one's "heritage" because we're over there so often. One of my mum's neighbours has two children - she is German and he is Scottish and I love the fact that both of hers are fluent in both. Brother and sister converse with mum in German, dad in English and speak to each other using both languages interchangeably! Having sat with her for a while and got her advice on "one parent, one language" I'm a bit more confident that it's do-able. I'm just wondering how others coped with this and if there's any further reading I could do?
