Ask-A-Linguist Message Details

Subject: Teaching Multilingual Children
Question: Hello, I was wondering is there a limit to how many children a toddler can acquire. Currently we have 12 foreign nannies that speak to our children in their language for a certain period of the time. My wife and I were wondering if this could be achieved or would it just confuse our twins?
