mommy even hindi pa siya nagsasalita basta kausapin mo lang always, you will knew if he understand you kc meron response.  The earlier, the better . . .  they will recall more, the words they usually hear.

sa son ko taglish alam niya,, natutuwa kng ako kasi pag kinausap mo sia ng tagalog minsan sasagutin k niya ng english, like the other day sabi ng playmate niya labas daw sia ng house,sabi niya, "no, mamay will get mad" ..

tas pag english naman, minsan tagalog sia sumasagot.. my pamangkin nga hubby ko galing pangasinan, so ilokano, kinakausap niya baby ko tinitignan lang sia sabay lingon sakin parang gustong itanong kung ano sinasabi ng kalaro niya, bgo p ko mkalapit sumali sa laro nila yung 7yr. old niece ni hubby sabi dun sa nephew ni hubby n ilokano, " hnd k niya maiintndhan kasi english alam ni anilov, ikaw ilokano", natawa n lang ako..

We have English-Only-Policy in the house. So 98% of her spoken words are english. The 2% goes for Filipino expressions since di rin maiwasan talaga na makarinig from the other kids. For me, communicating with your kid in english earlier, the better. Para masanay at maging comfortable ang kid to express in english. But sooner, we'll give her more exposure sa Filipino naman to balance out her language skills.  :D

My husband and I decided to let Miggy be exposed in Tagalog / Filipino first before we teach him English. Kung paano kami magsalita ng daddy niya.

Yung mga simple things he already knows how to name it in both english and tagalog.  I feel na mas madali turuan ng English ang mga bata when they already know tagalog than learn English muna then tska ipasok yung tagalog.

Nung bata naman ako hindi naman kami English speaking sa bahay pero OK naman ako in terms of written and spoken ENGLISH ngayon.

I also teach Miggy a few French words and phrases. If he wants to pursue when he goes to school then that would be his decision.

I don't have anything against parents who want their children to speak in English rather than Filipino. It's a personal choice really.
Just for my husband and I, as long as my son's nationality in his birth certificate says Filipino and we live in the Philippines, Tagalog should be his mother tongue.

Maganda talaga kung both matutunan ng bata. Tagalog and English. Marami namang venues.

It's just a bit scary na baka mabawasan ang literacy ng next generation filipinos in our National Language. Pwede namang pareho tutal pareho naman, at some point, ang alphabets natin.

Teaching your baby in English will have a devastating effect when they grow up. Hirap silang makibagay at makipagsalamuha sa ibang bata, specially the one's who speak tagalog or other dialect. Your child will have a hard time adjusting to her environment later. Why English? what's the reason? somehow your child will learn english when they will be in school...I never teach my child to communicate with us in English...there is time for them to learn it sooner or later.

depende lang yan sa atin kung ano gusto natin ituro sa mga anak natin..what important is nakakarelate sila and they can express their feelings in a way na magkakaintindihan tau. kung san tau komportable go tau dun. wag natin pilitin mag english kung di kaya..baka maya wrong grammar pa maituro natin mas nakakahiya anak natin. siguro taglish is fine with me..yung byenan ko ayaw ng english kasi daw pag nakapunta na kami ng america baka daw di na sila makapagsalita ng tagalog..

i really want to communicate with zac in tagalog as his main language..
but the thing is foreigner si hubby and di marunong mag tagalog, so
napipilitan kaming english ang maging usapan sa bahay...

may friend ako na 3yo na ang baby niya but di pa nagsasalita, the doctor
found out na may confusion kay baby kasi kinakausap nila in both language..
better stick to one language at a time daw, para di malito si baby  ;)

we communicate to Gelo in Tagalog and Bicol kasi syempre gusto namin matuto muna siya magsalita in Tagalog/Filipino language then saka ko na siya tuturuan magsalita in English. pero may mga times na i talk to him using english language and mukhang natutuwa siya kasi sumasagot siya by means of cooing or vocalizing other sounds. we also greet him and say i love you to him in different languages and nagrerespond talaga siya kaya natutuwa ako. also at 1 month i started reading books sa kanya mga english books kaya medyo exposed na siya sa english language. mas ieexpose ko na siya sa english language pag 3 months na siya by means of educational dvds like brainy baby,baby einstein and your baby can read.
