I understand your concern. Your child is nearing her speech milestone, and of other things, he could be helped in achieving this milestone. Here are a few tips- https://www.parentune.com/parent-blog/helping-a-child-with-speech-delay-a-mothers-role/561 Start talking to him as much you can.and avoid responding to his gestures, since unless you reduce your response, he will not put in required efforts. Like teach him how to ask for water, like do you want water? Instead of right away handing him glass of water. Encourage him to speak and follow it next time. One sentence per day can also bring huge differences. If still not, then review with a speech therapist for proper speech exercises. As far as language is concerned you child may get confused between 2 of them so its better that u first try and talk in that language at home which is your dominant one because this way he will not be able to pick up any of them. First converse only in that language that u use more socially. I hope thos helps. Take Care
