Hi Everyone! Here I am studying Irish and a few other languages and thinking if only my parents were able to speak another language to me while I was still young!( or in my case permitted to) I've decided should I have children I want to make sure they learn what languages I know fluently(hopefully Irish along with Spanish and German) but I also wonder actually HOW I would do this and if I could go overboard with too many languages. I found this website http://toddlerstoday.com/resources/articles/trilingual.htm
and it mentions having one parent speak one language and another parent another. I am probably far from having kids just yet ( but if I did these would be three languages I would want them to know) but does anybody have any personal experience with teaching their kids a foreign language that they could share? I know from my own experience that watching Muzzy videos(I think they have Irish now!), Lyric Language, and hearing it from 6 months to a year old continuously was not enough to breed fluency (or at least in my case) and if/ when I have kids I would want them to know as many languages as I do. I am also just curious on language acquisition in general. Any experience what works best? Irish in particular, since I have no one in my family who is Irish in whom they could see or learn it from except little ol' me!
Go raibh maith ‘ad everyone!
