Thanks for sharing. I am glad to see the U.S. is a possibility despite the money they spent to come here.

depends where you live though, in Northants we only have one intake, in September. Jude was 4 on 31st July and started in the September, so she was 4 and about 4 weeks old.

Good questions / answers. The school thing is weird over here. My niece started school this year, she's 4, and I was shocked when my brother told me they started teaching basic French to her! I was like "She can't speak fluent English yet!" Crazy. I didn't start foreign language until 11 at high school.
Like the possible sound that the new album will be like....but we know it'll be nothing like any of the past albums

I think starting to teach French at that age actually sounds like a great idea- I did French and German from 11-14 and then German for two more years after that, and have forgotten pretty much everything. Learning the languages almost concurrently is probably a better way of helping a child become bilingual (as long as, after a certain point, they are given the choice if they want to continue). Also, since part of the difficulty for me was understanding the different grammatical and phonological rules of French and German as opposed to English (which is really awkward compared to many others), learning French early might help the child pick up other Romance languages like Italian and Spanish later on if they wish to.

Overall I'm not sure I agree with Nicky- while I like the idea of a child being free to explore and learn without an institutional education for longer (and as he points out it hasn't really harmed Scandinavians), the first ten or so years of a child's life are the years in which they are most capable of learning quickly. I would be against imposing anything on children that they felt they couldn't cope with, though.

Anyway, all of this waffle aside- Nicky NEEDS to get on Come Dine With Me. Petition, anyone?
