She knows a lot for her age. Wow. You could stick to one language till she goes for her school admission. Children will naturally prefer their mother tongue. Do not force her to reply in Hindi or English. Rather appreciate when she speaks in English. Both of you try to converse more in English. Avoid Hindi because it will add to confusion. When you force or stress her she will begin to take a dislike and will stop conversing in English.
