What is my child refuses to learn a second language?
What should I do if my child doesn’t want to speak another language?
It is normal that kids prefer to speak the most dominant language in their environment and do not understand a parent that speaks a different language. However you can always motivate your child with attractive rewards (e.g. ice cream, chocolate bar, a trip to the amusement park) for listening to you or repeating what you say. It is good to remember that they will get used to the second language after a short while. Even if they don’t understand what you say at the beginning, they will get used to the sound and intonation and eventually grasp what you mean.
