My first language is Spanish and even though my husband was taught Spanish from birth (mother is Spanish but he is youngest of 3) his Spanish is pretty awful. As such, I speak to my 20 month old daughter in Spanish and he speaks to her in English 90% of the time and sometimes in Spanish. Between the 2 of us we speak English. My daughter isn't speaking as much as I would like, she speaks full sentences in her jibberish and adds the occasional English or Spanish word. Do you think the fact that my husband and I speak in English to eachother in her presence is confusing her? What has been your experience? Any advice is VERY much appreciated...
