hi everybody!
my name is martin from canada im 35 my wife 28 and we have a 4 months old baby 
Our native language is French and we did also learn english at school wich we speak at a decent level of fluency ( i think )

But the situation is that after a few trips to norway we did literaly fall in love with that contry, we do plan to go there in vacation every summer and maybe one day move there or retire there.

So the question is , since we plan to go there often and for relativly long period of time me and my wife want to learn norwegian AND we was wondering if it could be a good idea to teach norwegian to our kids at the same time ?

If yes what could be the best method ? we actualy speak french at home and dont plan on teaching english to our kids since anyways they will learn it a school around the age of 10-12.

What method should we use? im not realy comfortable to speak only norwegian at home since my wife dont catch up languages as fast as me i fear that this can make some distence between us and or distance beween my kids and my wife since im a realy talkative guy [tongue]

i tought that we could try to speak french in the morning , norwegian in the afternoon and revert back to french in the evening while we spend time together the most at meal/tv  time ?

So what is your advice about our situation and concerns?
thanks a lot have a nice day!
