Salted Caramel Scrolls

There are probably a lot of theories about how to raise a child in a bilingual home. Friends of mine used the following one which worked for them. He was Israeli and spoke to their children in Hebrew. She was from The Netherlands and spoke to her children in Dutch. When they moved to South Africa from Israel, they decided to speak to one another in English. The children were slower to speak than their peers, but when they did, they seemed to understand all that was being said to them. When I babysat I spoke to them in English or Hebrew and had to decipher what they wanted from the words they chose to use.When Hannah was born, Carli and James had to make their own decisions on how to raise her in a two language home.

Today’s inspirational recipe from Lavender and Lime ♥ Salted Caramel Scrolls ♥ #LavenderAndLime Share on X

James reads to Hannah in English. But they both speak to her in Afrikaans. Her maternal grandparents also speak to her in Afrikaans. Dave and I speak to her in English and most of the books I buy for her are in English. However, knowing that I am not the one reading to her, I have also given her Afrikaans books. It has been amazing listening to her word choice, and how she mixes languages. Just last week she said to me “glasses af Nonna”. Three languages in as many words. She wanted me to take my glasses off so we could ‘sleep’. The main thing is she is making herself understood.

  1. Those rolls look delicious! I believe that there is quite a large body of research on children raised in situations with more than one language, and the children all seem to come out fine. The human brain’s “language organ” is absolutely amazing! I’m sad that it disappears later in childhood.

    be well… mae at
