Hi all !
I have Italian/Croatian roots and unfortunately was not taught fluently by my mum who can speak (dad English !). I can pick up the odd word but literally just that, I can't link them together or anything.
Our daughter is almost 5 months old and we would really like her to speak Italian as to be bilingual is a huge life skill (one I'd envy!)

Pretty much since she was born all children's tv is in Italian, we have books and Italian musical toys as well as nursery rhymes that sing English then Italian (I think me and the husband are starting to learn from the toys !)

I was just wondering whether anyone had any experience of teaching a language they don't speak fluently and whether we're on the right track with the learning materials ?

Many thanks ! X
