Do you speak more than one language at home? Which ones?

We speak English and Arabic at home.

My daughter takes mandarin Chinese at school too. But She's obviously better with her first two langauges lol

Yes we do...We spoke both English and Spanish. It is very important to my husband and I for our girls to know Spanish b/c that is part of our culture and I don't want them to lose out on that part of being latina.

She will be taking Italian classes soon.

We feel the same way about our kids learning Arabic :-) Thankfully we have been succsessful with our daughter- she goes back and forth between the languages wtihout a problem.. my son isn't quite two so his speaking is limited lol but he definitely understands both very well.
