Being Bilingual

Dear Highlights,
I am Filipino. My aunt insists that we speak our language (Tagalog) at home and English outside the house. Her reasoning is so we can be bilingual. Do you think she is right?

It is a great gift to have someone in your family who is willing to take the time to teach you another language. It's a good way to keep family traditions alive, and it helps to develop your language skills. Your ability to use both English and Tagalog will help you learn a third and fourth language later in life if you want to. So it sounds like a great idea!
