Exposing a 2 year old child to 3 different languages , portugues, english and zulu at the same time, will it delay the child to speak and confuse the child ?

Children are usually amazing at coping with learning more than one langusage at the same time. Trying to learn 3 languages at once may be asking a lot but see how your child manages. You will probably be amazed as to how well he/she copes.
