Hi what languages are you trying to help your kids learn to speak? Do you speak any other than English? What cultures are represented in your home?

English will be the main language at home because my wife doen't speak japanese. Culturally, only the mixed up patchwork of New York american culture will be represented, but Japanese culture is familiar with me personally and professionally and I wish to pass that on to my son.


I am a new father and want to raise my son speaking Japanese and English bilingually. I am a linguistics student and will be taking frequent trips to Japan for research in the future, even though me and my wife will be speaking primarily English.
