Starting nursery in the Majority Language (English)

E has now been at nursery for over 6 months. Surprisingly, her English (majority language) has been slower to develop than I imagined. She likes to tell me, ‘Mamá, los niños en la guardería hablan inglés, pero yo hablo español’. Its back to school now in September and she’ll be going for 3 days a week. As a July born baby she’ll be starting school next September so I am very keen to see her English reach the level of her monolingual peers. She’s just started making simple sentences in English. Fingers crossed we will shortly have a bilingual child! At the moment she’s mainly just Spanish speaking!
