▸ Speak only the native language in the home, so that the child will not "lose" it. Encourage the child to speak the second language at school, beginning in preschool.

▸ Speak both languages, simultaneously, in the home from birth.

▸ Speak the native language in the home. When the child has learned to speak it well - in the preschool years - expose him to the second language.
