Hiya,

Anyone here raising their babies bilingual?

As I am born Austrian but living here in the UK with a lovely english man I am planning to raise my baby bilingual - so I'll be spaking German and my partner will speak English - the main family language will stay English.

well mine aint obvioulsly! as we are both english!

like i said, theres many families out there where the parents are of different origins and the child is raised with both languages! both languages meaning bilingual!

you also need to look around for bilingual schools - i know there are some in the area we live as its become a more mixed culture now than what it used to be.
