Great interview! Once when at an airport I enjoyed the company of a family returning to Italy. The mother was Scottish, the father Italian. The mother spoke to the children in Italian, but they replied to her in English, and the father spoke in English but they replied to him in Italian. From the outside it appeared that the parents were each honouring the culture of the others, but the children had sorted out for themselves which language "belonged" to whom. It was fascinating, and a great way to pass time at the airport! I really enjoyed the interview, it was good listening practice for me. Thanks for sharing.
Great to find you have returned, I will have some reading to catch up on! Your family is lovely!Susan
