Hi, I've separated from my British partner, so I'm moving back to my home country with our daughter. She's a British citizen, only 15 months and hasn't started to speak yet. She's been raised as bilingual, I talk to her in my language but everyone else around her in english. Now that we're moving how can I make sure she won't forget English what she hasn't even started to speak yet? Sometimes I talk to her in English when there are other kids around or it's important that others can understand what I say to her but I don't think I should mix the languages or start to talk to her in English, what would you do? Anyone has an experience?

she will forget english really quickly at that age, mine forgot their other language that they did understand ok at that age, when I left their dad.
