  1. Our 7 year old daughter, who is half English and half German, has mentioned that she would love a friend who is in the same situation as her: going to a German- only school, but speaking English at home. So, if there are any other 6-8 year old native English speaking girls who might be interested... she would love to hear from you!

  6. Hello,   I couldn't find a similar post so I hope it's ok to create a new one. Am looking for some input on the languages topic.. My husband and I have a two year old son and a 12 week old daughter, our son goes to Krippe (not a bilingual one) so his language there is German, and at home we speak English and French. He has just turned 2 and knows lots of words in French and English and he understands alot in both languages but isn't forming short sentences yet. As for his German he knows a few words too. I'm not too concerned that he is a bit behind some of our friends' kids at home because he is learning 3 languages, not 1. Anyway yesterday we had the 'annual review' with two of his carers at nursery and one of the main points that came up was his lack of attention, which they said is alot more extreme than other kids. Things go through one ear and out of the other, he stares blankly at them when he is being told off then carries on doing the exact same thing, doesn't understand instructions sometimes, seems to be in his own little world, etc, etc. These are all things I've noticed at home but put it down to selective hearing, trying to process 3 languages at once and generally being a toddler. Well the carers at nursery think there's something wrong with him and suggested he meet the Sozialpädagoge to assess him for possible 'Wahrnehmungsstörung" (sensory problems). We also need to get his ears and eyes checked to see if the problem lies there. So my question is, has anybody who has brought up a trilingual child ever had a similar experience? How have your toddlers been in terms of paying attention/language development with 2 or 3 languages?   Thanks!
