I live in the UK. I'm Polish and my partner is Polish, too. We have 10 months daughter who currently has a contact with Polish at home, English when we are out and we are out a lot, Spanish when we go to classes (mL@H).
She is going to a nursery in January so we won't be able to do Spanish classes anymore, but she will have French instead (not sure if this will happen at the beginning, from a baby room or later). We would like her to speak also Mandarin. As we don't speak Mandarin I would like to know how is the best to start. I understand that those early years are crucial so don't want to wait.
Does anyone know how many hours a week she needs to be talked to so it makes sense at all?
I don't expect it will make her fluent Mandarin speaker, but hoping it will help her in the future. Am I correct??
