I've always wondered how babies and young children can keep the languages separate
Something of a sidetrack, but if I emigrate from A to B it's presumably because I prefer the culture of B to that of A. So why would I want to "preserve the heritage"? And more to the point, why would my hosts at B want me to?
within a couple of generations pretty well everyone will be fluent in English from the age of 8.
However, Spanish could easily become dominant, especially in the Americas. And, of course, the influence of Chinese, or Russian shouldn't be underestimated.
