@Beofett I added the resources I have, unfortunately I don't have as many for that age group.

comment Not teaching a child how to speak
Actually, it's likely that they would develop complex language, in the same way that twins often develop "twinspeak." Look at Chomsky's work on a Language Acquisition Device. My view is that given a communication partner, humans will develop as sophisticated language as they need in order to get their wants and needs met.

comment Should we put our a child in a preschool with a primary language we do not speak?
All of the research shows that raising a child bilingually is not harmful to children. I agree that this specific situation probably is not a good idea since the parents do not speak Mandarin, but the idea that the child will become isolated and unable to interact is contradicted by every study I have ever read on the topic, and I've read most of them. At 24 months the child is in an excellent age range to be exposed to additional languages since the terminal myelination point has not extended past the left temporal lobe and neural exuberance is still occurring there.
