☯ ISSTH Chapter 645 ☯

Chronicles of Baby Deathblade: Normally, I speak to BDB in English. MDB speaks to him in both English and Chinese. Recently I discovered something… interesting. When I talk to BDB in Chinese… he laughs. That’s right. He almost always starts laughing and squirming around in (happiness/joy/derision) when I speak Chinese to him. I think I need to start using Chinese more….

  1. OMG Those feet are soo cute <3
    I adore children too much. Also I think you should speak to him in one language specifically until he learns it and/or is able differentiate between different languages

    1. I agree and disagree.

      Developing the lingual skills early is a huge advantage (as in, the child will be able to think fluently in both languages, will have native accents for both languages, etc). Once the child has the lingual skills (by far the hardest part), it’s just a matter of learning when to apply them.

      But on the other hand, both parents alternating randomly is a bad idea. You (DB) should definitely look at the one-person-one-language model and the minority learning model. Personally I recommend the one-person-one-language model while he is very young, and then the minority model once he starts school.

      In this model, the parents use their native languages when interacting with the child – you would use English, your wife would use Chinese. When he starts school (i.e in 100% Chinese), you then use English exclusively at home, so he still gets exposed significantly to both languages. This way, the child can clearly see that two distinct languages are being used, and gets the full benefits of being exposed to those languages.

      Of course, no matter how you approach the topic, learning two languages from early childhood is a very huge advantage, and the long term outcomes are all better than learning a single language. No matter which models you use, the child will learn to differentiate between the languages (almost instantly after they start school), will still develop a normal vocabulary, and so on.

      1. Seeing that this is the Little Patriarch, learning languages would be simplicity itself. He will probably learn more languages than Mad-Eye Moody~!
