Speaking a second language

We lived in Costa Rica for a year and a half. Shortly after we moved there, my daughter (who was in kindergarten at the time) picked up Spanish and was PERFECTLY fluent in it! An American lady who heard her speaking Spanish told me she was shocked when Misty spoke English because her English was so good. (She had assumed that Misty was a native.) When we returned to the States, Misty completely forgot her Spanish (almost overnight). She's now in fifth grade. Do you think her Spanish will come back to her if she studies it in high school?

    I think that it can come back if she studies it again. The sooner you get her back into using and learning the second language the better.
