One person one language

July 11th, 2013

You know we practise the principle of “one person one language” (or “one parent one language”) at home, that is, Daddy speaks French and Mommy speaks German. Yesterday evening I realised there is another person and, yes, another language, present in the household, when I said “Alright!” to my daughter.

“Toi dis pas alright. Dora dit alright.”

That would be Dora the Explorer, German version which is bilingual (sort of) German-English.
(She watches it for the German, not for the English. But she does say “Let’s go!” and “We did it!” as a result. No comment.)
