Laura Hjaltason Posted over 3 years ago Does the future of education lie in bilingualism? Is it even possible? I grew up speaking Spanish at home, and I learned English at school. I am fluent in both languages. My husband grew up speaking Icelandic at home, and he learned English at school. He is fluent in both languages. Our five year old daughter is now being exposed to our languages, and she is learning Mandarin as we now live in China. Our hope is that she will be fluent in all languages, but most importantly that she learn and share the diversity of the different cultures we are exposing her to.
