Research shows that it's best to talk and sing to your child in the language you know best. Your child will hear language spoken fluently and lets you explain many things to your child that you might not be able to do as well in English. When they get to school, your child will be able to translate all the words they already know, rather than having to learn both the English word and it's meaning at the same time.
