When my English brother married a French girl, they had children who spoke French first. I bought English kid's books for them that I taped as I read, so that they would know English as well. They grew up so bilingual, one doesn't know which is their first language because they learned both at the same time. They are so fortunate. I wish I had had the same opportunity, as I speak French rather badly.
