  • I live in an area with a lot of Hmong vietnamese. I would say they probably start their kids off with their language, but English becomes their first language as they go through school.

  • Sure, a bunch of the kids at my son's school who don't speak English when they get to Kindergarten and only learn it at school.

  • Of course, There are a lot of children here with hispanic parents, but the children were born here in America, thus making them natural born American citizens. Their parents speak only Spanish at home so the children's first language is Spanish and they don't speak any English till they are sent to school.

  • Yes. There are villages in Alaska that still speak their traditional languages.
