Our son has just turned 5yrs and has had our Spanish nanny speak with him since he was 1yrs old. She is pretty consistent and rarely uses English with him. She speaks at her native speed and he understands what she says -occasionally he might not understand a word, at which point, he will say so. He has started to respond to her in a few Spanish words but nothing more and only when the rest of our family aren't around! He has always watched tv 50% of the time in Spanish, listens to Spanish stories in the car and reads books/games in Spanish. Neither myself nor his father speak Spanish but our nanny lives with us and spends as
much time with him as us! We're not sure why he won't speak or why he does t seem to be able to put a whole sentence together despite his understanding of vocabulary being good?
