Non English speaker 4years old child in Malta

Hello everyone, I would like to know if everyone have had this experience before and what to do, my boyfriend daughter will probably join us in Malta soon she is 4 years old and she only speaks Portuguese, there is any Portuguese school or school that have Portuguese teachers that will teach her English??

Hi there, I don't think there is a portuguese school in Malta. On the upside, children usually learn a new language quickly, if she goes to kindergarten she might pick up English fast, some of the language schools also have English courses for young (pre school) children. Good luck

OK many thanks for the help 😊

I agree with iris_fabian_david's comment.  Small children, when immersed in a new environment with a new language can often gain fluency in very short times.  If only most adults could perform as well.  Fortunately, small children aren't as afraid of making mistakes and don't let ego and other reasons block their path to learning.

Many thanks, I will so it won't be a reason for not accepting her in kindergarten if she do not speak English at first??

I couldn't imagine it being a problem.  Just explain the situation, it won't be the first time it's happened :)

Hi. Thanks for your reply. How can I contact portuguese people who are still active in the fórum? Thanks
