Brief Answer:
Will not be a problem but would need a few principles to be followed

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for asking on HealthcareMagic.

I have gone carefully through your query and understand your concerns. Let me assure that bilingualism (exposure to two different languages) will lead to parallel development of both the languages. However, care needs to be taken to discern between the two while speaking.

Let me know if I could help further.
