I have a 4 month old and I want her to be multi-lingual-
My family speaks creole, and we have family in France- so that's 2 lanugages there - (french and creole) but we do not speak french on this side of the pond often.
Her father (he's no longer in the picture) is German- and although he's not in the picture- I still want her to know that language as well.
Is there a method that you find works best?
Below is my plan- please help bc I am not sure if this is the best route:
Right now- older family members speak to her in creole, I speak english with her, and take her to a french/creole speaking church.
I have the french cable channel and children's cds in french and play whenever we're driving. At 2yrs, I am hoping to enroll her in the children's language workshop or Alliance Francaise in NYC and take classes for myself as well.
Annual trips to France may be an option here since I used to go every couple of years since I was 15.
As far as German goes- Rosetta Stone when she's able to read.
Please let me know your thoughts, any feedback would be great.
