It’s a natural consequence of certain economic realities that a child going to daycare in the United States inevitably gains early lessons in languages other than English. Our daycare is owned and operated by Korean-Americans. They have one employee who is Mexican and speaks little to no English. This is why Baby Dog, going on fifteen months, now knows how to say “nose” in three languages. Hell if I know what the Spanish or Korean words for “nose” are. But then, I know how to say it in French, so maybe I’ll catch up eventually.
