Siguro mommy kidsrepublik awkward for your parents to talk to each other in English pero tell them kahit kay baby lang sana. Na pag siya ang kausap nila they might want to talk to him in English. Maririnig parin ni baby na Tagalog ang grandparents when talking to each other but at least he'll be encouraged to answer in English when he is being asked and talked to in English.

Samin din dito English pag kay Nigel pero pag kami kami lang (magkakapatid) Tagalog pero sa dad namin English din kasi ganun din kami nasanay. Most of our relatives English din so ganun din nila kausapin si Nigel.

One time nagpunta kami ni Nigel sa party ng anak ng officemate ko. Hiniram nila si Nigel and they were talking to him in Tagalog. Paglapit ko sakanila kinausap ko si Nigel in English tapos sabi nila kaya pala di sila pinapansin, di sila naiintindihan. But I'm sure Nigel will learn Tagalog pag school age na siya.

Ako english ko kinakausap ang baby ko. Ganon din family ko sa kanya. Pero minsan kinakausap din sya ng tagalog ng mga pinsan ko na kalaro niya..  Sa akin okay lang yon. Itinatranslate ko lang sa english KAPAG hindi naintindihan ng anak ko.

Ngayon yun anak ko marunong mag english, marunong din mag tagalog. Minsan kapag kinakausap niya mga pinsan niya, at palagay niya hindi sya naiintindihan, pipilitin niya magsabi ng tagalog. Like minsan sabi niya sa kalaro niya "please get it" nung parang di sya naiintindihan, sabi niya "kunin" hehe!

natuwa naman ako kasi sabi ng pedia niya "MATATAS" daw magsalita ang anak ko. batanggueno word for articulate.  happy naman ako kahit di na sya pure english magsalita ngayon.  :)

That may be true that mahihirapan in Filipino Subject but he can learn both languages so that hindi sya mukhang naive if there are children speaking in english around.

My son's we usually talk to them in english,although nakaka understand naman din sila ng tagalog, when my eldest started school that's the time na mas naging fluent siya sa tagalog, siguro dahil na rin sa mga classmates niya. Natuwa lang din ako sa school kasi pinapag speak talaga sila ng english, atleast para di niya makalimutan..

maganda nga yung ganon, marunong nang magEnglish ang bata. pero ako, hindi ko natututukan ang anak ko. kase ang yaya niya hindi naman ganon ka fluent sa English.

yung mga simple/basic lang:

watch tv
drink your milk
good morning
good night everybody
Geno is a good boy
let's pray Anak
hello Papa, hello Mama (kunwari kausap sa mobile phone)
i love you

(nakalimutan ko na yung iba eh)

yun lang ang sinasabi sa kanya na English. Paunti-unti lang muna. Pero gusto ko talaga matuto siya. Para kahit hindi man siya makapasok sa isang magandang-magandang school balang araw, at least natuturuan ko na siya.

my husband, brother and i talk to my baby in english. the rest of the family members and the yaya talk to her in tagalog. at first, ayaw ng husband ko na kinakausap ng tagalog pero i told him na okay lang naman ganun. i have a friend who was exposed to both languages but she speaks english so well. nakakatuwa. i asked her mom about it and she told me na dapat expose sa maraming languages ang bata habang maaga.

my hubby n i use to talk to our daughter in english..my first reason is 1. its easy for her to learn coz it has minimal syllables unlike tagalong. 2.it will be hard for her to learn  english if i will start it late n depend n lang s skul. 3. aminin natin o hindi cute db ang batang englisera..hehe. 
mabilis lang naman matutunan ng bata ang tagalog at for sure d sya mahihirapan sa skul kc majority s pilipinas ang tagalog magsalita.  since ns womb p lang c enz i talk to her in english n..i even buy books for common errors for my baby watch english cds and im afraid when she got 5yo she'll correct my grammar na..im not good in english thats y i want my baby to practice it early.  yung mga tao sa bahay at mga friend ko they talk to her in english..nasanay n sila..kc d sila naiintindihan kapg tagalog ang kausap nila...what good thing naman mdali lang na22nan ni enz yung mga tagalog..english tagalog n sya halos..like narinig niya sa lola n "doon" ky un ginagamit niya.. when she want to point something far from her she use two words p..."doon" at "there" ky i have nothing to worry, i believe it will be not hard for her kapg ns skul n sya. yung anak kc ng boss ko dati c dr kt foreigner pero mrunong dng magtagalog anak niya kc dito naman lumaki

hi mommies!
i like to share lang, my son is now 3 yo and magaling siya mag english   :D. funny thing is, ay accent pa siya. hehe pero kami naman ni husband kinakausap namin siya in english and tagalog. my phlisophy is, you dont expect kase na matuto siya mag english sa school fluently esp kung puro tagalog magsalita yung classmates. Before ayaw ni husband na english namin siya kausapin kase filipino daw tayo. sabi ko naman yung tagalog (the language) kase hindi mo masyado kelangan ituro in time matuto rin siya. hehe right now medyo di masyadong nakakaintindi ng tagalog si xander esp kung malalim yung tagalog, pero the basic naiintindihan ka niya..pero he would answer you back in english.   ;D
dony know lang pag nag-aral na siya kase nursery pa lang naman siya eh..

I want my daughter to be bilingual. Filipino and English are both important. I don't speak Filipino well and I have " to pay for it" every day. So my rule is for anyone to speak her in THEIR first language. For yayas, that's Tagalog or bisaya and for my family that's English. She has equal exposure and her pronuniciation is pretty good:)

I think it is an advantage if kids know how to speak english at young age.  In my experience since kinakausap ko yung anak ko in english, so natuto siya at early age.  When we went abroad on vacation, he can converse very well with other people, like sa airport and mga gatherings where there are other nationalities.

Now we're back in Pinas, he also learn Tagalog thru his playmates and watching TV, haynaku favrit niya ang Eat Bulaga - pinoy henyo :).  Nakakaaliw kc now he can speak in sentence of 6 - 7 words.

i talk to my little girl in english. she is fluent in english but she knows a little tagalog. her vocabulary in tagalog is very limited. when you talk to her in tagalog she can understand it but she answers you in english. para akong may fil-am na anak. kasi pag magtagalog siya may accent. hehe.
