Speaking English

It is amazing how fast kids learn. A couple of months back, my son did not know how to speak English. He just knew a few words. He is very fluent in Telugu. He had trouble communicating outside home. So, we decided to teach him English hoping that he remembers Telugu as well.¬† Fast forward now, he is able to speak sentences in English. He still remembers Telugu. Just now, he came to me with a broken toy and is asking me “fix it for me mommy”. I am amazed at his vocabulary. He has the American accent too which he picked up from a couple of DVD’s he watches at home. He does not go to daycare.

Now he totally understands that there are two different languages and almost everything  has a name in both the languages. He is slowly understanding the fact that he should not mix both languages.I am planning to teach him to read and write Telugu. I have no idea how much effort it will be, I just hope I can do it.
