My granddaughter is bilingual she speaks Indonesian and English. I feel since she will be 3 in July she should be speaking English better. Has anyone used The Sylvan Learning Center, and how much did your child's grades improve? My granddaughter's babysitter speaks only Indonesian. When talking to me she tries to use English she knows I only understand English and with her babysitter she know to speak only Indonesian. Sometime she tries to use Indonesian with me and gets very upset because she can't make herself understood. Her mom and my son speak to her in English as well in Indonesian. So she thinks I'm being either stupid or mean when I don't understand her. It's very upsetting to her when I can't understand what she wants. She RESIST me trying to teach her English. She want to mix it together. I know toddlers are better able to understand and learn other languages. But I want to build her vocabulary in English. Advice?
