My son is almost 2. I speak English and some spanish. My husband speaks english only. My son stays with his aunt during the week while I work ,who only speaks spanish to him. He is learning quickly. My question is: for the things I do know how to say in spanish is it ok for me to say in both english and spanish at the same time to him. For example, saying, "Do you want some water, quieres agua?" I have heard conflicting opinions with some people saying you must stick to one person, one language. I know I can't only speak in spanish to him because I am not fluent, but I do know a lot of words especially for a 2 year olds vocabulary. What are your experiences with this?
