My grandmother is 92 years old. We call her Nona. She doesn’t speak any English and she’s been in the country since 1968. That’s 47 years and she’s refused to learn English. My cousins and I (all 13 of us) don’t know how to speak any Italian. How sad is that?
The good thing is Gwen doesn’t speak English yet either. Babies are truly enjoyed by any age. Their innocents and love are so genuine, you don’t need language to communicate. Smiling, laughing, and making funny noises is enough language enough.
Peace and love.
