Brazilian and Portuguese pupils are the majority in Little Yum-Yum’s school.
The other day, Max and I were home, when he switched languages. I thought “Nice try, son. I speak Spanish too”. (I’ve been learning almost every day for the past sixteen months). However, I couldn’t understand what he was saying.
Me: What are you saying, Bubba?
Max: (Continues to speak in the language, whilst smiling at me).
Me: I don’t understand
Max: It’s Portuguese, mummy!
I wrote down a few of the sentences as best as I could, and translated them via Google Translate.
Yep, he sure was speaking Portuguese! Some of is friends have been teaching him their language, which I think is amazing!
Fortunately for him, I don’t have the time to learn another language.
