Hello, I am hoping you guys can hep me making a choice for my children’s school.

To give you some background… I am originally from Brazil, live in NC and speak to my sons (1 and 3) in Portuguese. My husband is American and we adopt the one parent one language approach. Balancing the amount of exposure in Portuguese is definitely a challenge. My oldest son understands 100% of Portuguese, but mostly answers in English. They both attend English speaking daycare/pre-school and there are not many available resources for Portuguese speaking families around.

I am deciding on where to send my child for kindergarten and wondering if a Spanish immersion school would help them with Portuguese development in the long run… I would appreciate your thoughts on the matter.

thank you in advance!
