I've had an interest in language learning for as long as I can remember. As a child I would often come home with material to learn various languages, but always had issues such as procrastination and loyalty to learning to overcome!
I've been very pleased with my progress in learning Spanish now, as an adult. However, the language I really would like to be learning is German. I wonder, is it a good idea to be learning two languages at once, or better to wait until I have done most of my Spanish studies and feel confident in my fluency of a second language before adding a third? Anyone have experience with this?
Also, my employer gave me the okay to introduce her two year old daughter to Spanish (I am a nanny) So I am quite excited about this! Any thoughts on doing this? She is incredibly bright and well spoken in English for her age, and makes up her own languages. So I've talked with her about how people in different places speak with different words. She has some bilingual books so we read both and I use Spanish when I can. She just listens and acts like everything is perfectly normal, even if I know she has no clue what I'm saying. I figure she probably is picking up on quite a bit. I've taught Spanish to older children, following a home school curriculum, but I don't think thats the way to do it with a toddler. Thoughts? I feel comfortable and confident in this approach that I am using, but feedback from someone who has done this would be most appreciated.
