Depending on age, place of birth and level of Russian language proficiency, bilingual children may experience difficulties in sound pronunciation, distinguishing similar phonemes of the Russian language, as well as in the correct use of lexical and grammatical categories. In the process of teaching such children to read and write, a mixture of Cyrillic and Latin often occurs.

To solve such problems, it may be necessary to consult a Russian-speaking specialist and, if necessary, take classes with him. If this is neglected, the growing child will very quickly begin to find it difficult to select words and correctly coordinate them in a sentence, and simply be ashamed of his “clumsy” speech. The logical result will be the rejection of communication in Russian and the transition to a more comfortable English.

Therefore, it is very important to know at what level of speech development your child is and whether this level is appropriate for his age.
