New Reality Show?

Would you watch a reality show titled “Citizen of the World” where people have a certain number of weeks to learn a language, prepare specific meals, cultural dances, and more?  Looks like a fabulous idea – hopefully Oprah will think so!

Family travel is the best education

Do you know about SoulTravelers3?  If you don’t you should really check them out!  They are a family of three who sold everything and have been traveling the world ever since.  Such an inspiration!

What is the temperature where you live?

One of the most enjoyable interactions on the Multilingual Living Facebook page this week was a rundown of where families live and what the temperature was on that day.  Fabulous!  I was glued to Facebook all day curious to read each new entry as it came in.  How hot was it in Dubai!  Well, I agree with Philipp Tremblay when he wrote “‎@Lunanna Bicknell it’s freakin’ hot in Dubai, my GOD.”

Quote of the day

To finish things off, here is a wonderful quote that came to me via @readtoday on Twitter

Cultural relevance is important if we are to build a level playing field. Children need to love themselves–their cultures
