I am from Colombia so I speak to him in Spanish. His Dad talks to him in english.. Does this has anything to do with his delay?

I would not worry at all many children in my daughters gym class (including my daughter) did not start talking until closer to 2 years old. If you say things and can see that they are understanding what you are saying and able to start following simple directions, they are getting it. My daughter started by just making sounds for the words and not even having a clear "Hi" until about 21 months. Just keep talking to them in both languages and reading!

I'm in the exact same predicament as you...my boy is 20 months already...Daddy speaks french and I English...I did hear they will take longer to talk because of the 2 languages...although I'm also a bit worried...
