My Trilingual Toddler...

We have been here in Guatemala for about a year and a half. We were in Antigua learning Spanish, now we are here in Santiago learning Tz'utujil. We are all picking up Tz'utujil little by little. Naomi is the one who is a bit confused!! She speaks mainly English,but knows quite a bit of Spanish and is learning Tz'utujil now.

She was in her high chair and I said 'will some one please tell Daddy it's time for dinner'. Naomi Said "Ho' papi eat!" (Ho' is Tz'utujil for -let's go, papi is Spanish for-Daddy and of course eat is English!!!) Well there you have it, our little trilingual toddler. She is so much fun to be around and everyone loves to talk to her and we never know what language she will speak but surprisingly enough she usually gets the right language with the right person!!
