On this episode of Bilingual Avenue, I answer a listener’s question who is navigating her son’s transition to the community language. She is concerned that he will need more exposure to English to make things easier for him when he starts school. However, she is concerned that if she herself speaks to him in both languages, he may be confused. I assure her that he will be able to tell difference but encourage her to consider what languages she will want to use when her son has more exposure to the community language.
