    My family is Danish, but we moved to Germany when I was two. Since my parents didn't really know German either, I just learned it by going to kindergarten. The other kids there didn't speak Danish so I just had to adjust. My parents tried to speak German to me at home a few times, when they had learned a bit more, but I refused to talk to them in anything other than Danish. I think that if the child knows that there is no other way to communicate with a person than to speak their language, they'll learn it eventually, so just be consistent. I'm afraid that the child will be confused if one person speaks two different languages to them, at least when they're very young (I was! I might be the only one though). That being said, learning two languages from a young age is great! Learning English and Spanish as I got older almost came naturally to me.
