Subject: Child watching cartoons in a foreign language
Question: My husband and I who live in The United States use one parent one child method at home in Chinese and English. Our son did go to a Italian preschool for an year so he has been exposed to two Chinese dialects, Italian and English. We have cartoons in all these languages but for the past two years he as shown great interest in a Korean speaking cartoon. How does effect the foundation we made in our family cultural languages? What can he get out of watching a cartoon in a language he had zero exposer to otherwise?
