My husband was listening to the weekly Ladino hour on the Jewish radio, and the speaker said that today he wasn't aware of ANY family where Ladino was used as the FIRST COMMUNICATION LANGUAGE between the members.
I would like to know if you know any family corresponding to that definition? You don't have to give details, just "a family with three kids in Turkey" is enough, though details are welcome. IYH.

I learnt that it's more or less dying out. I have a friend who's father is Turkish and he is now studying Ladino at the Hebrew University. Other than that I havent heard anyone speak it (and I grew up in a community with a large amount of Spanish-Portuguese Jews).
