We are bringing up our son to speak both English and Hebrew. He's 4, and speaks both equally at the moment.
When I was learning to speak, we lived in a small town in Germany. My parents didn't speak any German and the town we lived in didn't speak much English. I actually learned more German than English. We moved back state side when I was five. Having no one to speak the language with (my parents never really learned it) I lost it very quickly. It has since been a struggle to relearn it, because I can speak the words very well, and remember them, but my overconfidence cripples me when tackling the grammer. I suggest if your children have an opportunity to be bilingual, maintain it be finding people for them to speak the language with. However, if they cannot, I for one pick up accents very easily and learn languages fairly well, though I haven't tried until just now to learn any of them more than passing, so there is still benefit to be had.

I would like to work abroad teaching English. But the number of options of courses to take to get a TEFL qualification seems a bit confusing. Is it better applying for the most expensive or is that not necessary?
