Has English Won Already?

Now here's a thought: we always expected Lilia to drop all languages except English at some point, just because we're living in England. But what if her English is already stronger than her German, French and Arabic?

Would we actually notice?

She doesn't really speak English at home that much. She does a bit. When she comes home from pre-school, she will often spend the rest of the day speaking English to herself. But since Souad and I do not speak English with her, she essentially only speaks it with herself.

That means that we will actually not notice when her English has surpassed the other languages.

Maybe it has happened already...
