That is an interesting question Pooja! You will find interesting articles on this topic -Just type languages in search bar and move to the articles tab. there's an expert article which says that more languages kids are exposed to, the faster they pick up. Many moms like you who have 2 different Languages at home and the child picks up.

the best thing about being in India is most of our kids are anyways going to be bilingual. kids learn languages early on by listening snag picking words up. start speaking to them in different languages and theyll pick up soon... grammar and other technical things can come later on with age

Speak in the language that nobody else speaks at home like hindi. they might initially not start speaking in Hindi but will understand n gradually follow.

Don't worry too much..kids pick languages quickly. We speak telugu home n my daughter picked it well. Her school kids talk kannada..so she picked few there.. hubby talks to her in English n she understands that too as she watches rhymes ! recently took her to Jungle Book..explained her meanings of few.words and she understands Hindi too... also if I want to tell husband something which she doesn't need to understand we communicate in Hindi.. n now she understands that too..

so just don't worry... They are quick learners.
