What the Expert Says:

Hello and thank you for writing to JustAsk,

There are many ways to help a child increase her fluency. Consider programs that are online or through your local library (eg. Rosetta Stone -English). Also, immersion programs that are fun and interactive where others engage using language skills, such as a young drama/theater class.  

In time, your daughter will become more accustomed to the language and feel more comfortable with peers. Also, consider her being able to teach others her home language, which may prove to be fun and exciting for her friends.

Good luck!
