Nicolas, Malakhai age 4 and Arix age 8 weeks Dad is French speaking from France. We have made a household decision for Nico not to speak to the kids in English. We hope to enforce this rule to ensure our sons learn to speak French! For the past 4 years we have neglected to do this and as a result Khai can still not speak French. We have begun a French workbook with Khai. He seems to enjoy this as he colours the picture and sticks corresponding stickers to the words. We hope that between the French only policy with the kids and the workbooks we will create a French and English speaking family… I may add that I do not speak French myself … An exciting new step for us all!
