Our family friends did a great job.

The mother was German and the father Chinese. The family lived in England, so when the children were born, the mother only spoke German to the children, and the father only spoke Chinese. All English communication came from other sources like TV, radio, other family, School etc.

By the time the children were early teenagers they were fluent in three languages, and some of the best schools in the country are fighting to enroll them.

If you can speak more than one language when your child is born, this strategy can set them up very well in life.
