I moved to the UK from Slovakia 8 years ago.
Our boys were born three years later.
Although I knew that English would always be their first language, I wanted them to speak Slovak too. It was unimaginable not having my children speak my first language.
While they were small and spent most of the time with me, it was not a problem. At one point, they even spoke more Slovak than English.
