What I love about My Bilingual Kids
There are so many things I love about my bilingual kids and watching them speaking multiple languages always amazes me.
I love how they learn so easily, how they repeat everything, and how it all comes so natural to them.
I love watching them switch languages, speaking one language one minute, and then switching to another language straight after.
I love how they are curious, they want to know about the world and other places.
I love their memory, how they are able to memorise so many words in different languages.
I love how they can use two languages in one sentence to get their point across when they can’t think of the words they need.
I love how they translate when someone is around and can’t understand.
I love how they are growing up with an open mind to other cultures.
I love how proud they are of themselves, being bilingual, and able to communicate in more than one language.
I love how they tease me when I speak their second language.
But the one thing I love most of all….
The thing that beats any other feeling in the world…
Is the way it feels when I hear them say “I LOVE YOU” in my Mother Tongue.
There really is nothing like it!
