Big Baengy Starting to Talk

Baengy started to speak a few months ago. Her abilities have since improved dramatically and she can understand quite a lot now.

We mainly talk to her in Korean at the moment. It's not a conscious decision, but it seems more natural seeing as it's the language used at her daycare centre. My Korean is still terrible. 

English will come soon!

For Baengy to learn two languages well, Mom needs to speak to her exclusively in Korean, and Dad should speak exclusively in English. It's been shown that children firmly associate each language with a different parent, thus learning both languages faster while also keeping the languages from getting muddled in their heads.

hi lee, merry xmas to you and your family. baengy is so cute. the way we did in our family in the states was that we spoke to our kids exclusively in korean because we knew they would learn english on their own. afterall outside the house everyone here speaks english.
