Today I am looking after a little boy. There is one problem. He went to his Grandma in South Africa for a year. He has forgotten all his English. I don'the know his language. We are communicating in sign language and I am sure the poor chap thinks I am a bit stupid. I guess it sill take a few more weeks before he speaks English again. Meanwhile, I wish I knew or understood Swazi! I knew this chap as a baby and toddler,We used to have a lot of fun.

He'll pick English up again quickly. It would be a pity if he forgot his Swazi, though.

Yes. Kids usually seem to do so. I think he will be bilingual as there seems to be a fair bit of to and fro between the countries

@Jackalyn Being bilingual will be quite useful.

I'm surprised he has totally forgotten all English, I expect it will soon come back again, just keep trying!
