Its amazing how a childs brain work. Bilingual children have a different leaqrning curve. But they all do it - almost perfectly. My daughter, 4 yrs old have develped her own hinglish: Lets go out for kheling', 'we will go bahar' and so on. Surprisingly, when shes started to go to school, where almost all the children are monolingial (hindi), the Hinglish has weakened and the Hindi is stronger.
