My kids went to school with lots of kids who learned english in kindergarten.
In nyc kids are in english as a second language for years.
I don't know what we do, but they totally can understand you and talk by christmas.



Yeah he's more or less a native-speaker now. The important thing for kids is immersion. If you treat it like ESL they'll learn it like ESL.

She wants woot! to give her a vacuum, for her years of loyal service.

Mostly lurking, since I've never really talked to her. She has shown up on a regular basis since I've been here.

She and Gimma had one of the first woot related web sites. Crap swap? Maybe.

Solid jars require packing materials, perhaps shards would be easier.

I'm just hanging out, really.
