She speaks Japanese? And some English? And you both can understand each other? Dad is good.
Dad did good job, mom did good job.
Japanese and English are two languages, so that’s a second language either way. I hate to tell you if you haven’t already figured that out
Also, my family mostly stinks at all of those languages, if I didn’t make that clear before. We really suck equally at more than one language.
You guys are doing fine. Relax. I barely speak English coherently, but I somehow manage to feed myself and the kids.
You are my friend, man, I don’t like seeing you stress. It causes me nearly-physical discomfort. I type things like this in hope that it can help you relax, to let you know that all of us have been in scary situations with the development of our kids, but we’ve all come out OK.
We’re all parents here, and we’ve been through the wringer at some time or another, and you’re doing fine.
EDIT: Anyway, cadence and ordinal progression of noun/verb, we have
crappy loose structure of adverbs and pronouns, as long as you put the modifier in front of the word it modifies.
English has very few gendered nouns for inanimate objects or generic proper nouns. I actually don’t think you have to worry about that, I don’t know why I brought it up.
You can put some words together like Legos (thank you, Germany, and also in the 80s English speakers stopped giving a shit).
The letters R and L are a huge pain in the butt, but a speech therapist can be a simple and easy solution (I used to stutter when I was a teen, badly, like, really bad, but my therapist cleared it up, mostly through having me practice things like “R” and “L”. I don’t know why this worked for stuttering, but it did, and it was free).
Singing. You don’t ever want to hear me sing, I’m awful, but it was fun, and helped me with my speech issues.
