Growing Up in a Household with Two Languages

Every household has its advantages and disadvantages when it comes to growing up there. Growing up in a wealthy household would be nice, growing up in a household with Wi-Fi is definitely a plus; but the one that has always seemed the most alluring to me is growing up in a household with two languages.

Growing up in a household with two languages generally means that your parents are of different nationalities. However, this is not always the case. My mother was Irish and my father was English; I never got to learn two languages but I did learn how to hate myself.

I have always envied my friends who can speak two languages. One friend in particular comes to mind; she can speak Italian and English, which I find to be extremely impressive. Another friend of mine can speak English and French... Though he does neither very well.

Studies show that those who grow up in household with two languages find it easier to learn a third later in life. As a result of this, it can be extremely intimidating to be around someone capable of speaking two languages. They are usually extremely intelligent people who are quick to notice anything odd going on around them (which they then ridicule in various tongues.) It becomes even more intimidating if you are actually at the home of somebody who is bilingual, which is full of people who can speak two languages. I recall my first girlfriend, Alex, who was Polish. The first time she brought me home, I remember her mother coming up to her bedroom and shouting at her in Polish while pointing her finger at me. Alex was quick to shout back at a deafening pitch while I sat awkwardly at her desk wondering what the word "draniu" meant. After several more minutes of Polish jibber-jabber, Alex suggested we leave the house; I happily obliged.

I'm sure as you read this, you can remember similarly unpleasant situations, which you have, found yourself in. This is because of the ever growing amount of households with two or more languages. In 2011, a study revealed that one in five families in America do not speak English as their first language. One in five! That accounts for sixty million people speaking English and another language...  That's a lot of awkward thirteen years old boys watching confusing mother/daughter arguments.
