Multilingual Living’s Week in Review – Sept 5

by Corey · 0 comments

This is a review of the interesting articles, Tweets, Facebook posts and more which took place this week in and around our Multilingual Living universe. Thank you everyone for sharing your tips with me! Keep them coming!

84 Color Pages of Multilingual Research, Wisdom, Tips & More

Because we think you will love it, we have decided to make our preview issue of Multilingual Living Magazine available without any strings attached.  No login.  No need to subscribe.  Just choose your viewing preference (magazine viewer or PDF) and start enjoying the articles, photos and more.

If you like what you see then consider getting your hands on the other 1,000 pages contained in the back issues.  The information is still as relevant now as it was then!  And best of all: researchers include clear articles about raising bilingual and multilingual children that you won’t find anywhere else.

This is the primary source of income for Multilingual Living.  So if you are on the fence as to whether you want to purchase back issues or not, consider it a very, very, very appreciated donation and we’ll be giving you a big virtual hug!  We’ll have more products in the future but for now we are doing everything you see here for free.  Why?  For the simple reason that we love it.  We can’t not do it!

Mi Vida Loca

As you know from my Language Challenge 101 posts, my family and I are learning as much Spanish as we can in 101 days.  We are doing what we can without taking any classes and with as many free resources as possible.

Our inspiration to do this comes from families everywhere who have said that they want to learn a new language (or brush up a rusty one) and share it with their children but just don’t see how to make it happen.  My husband and I have said the same thing about Spanish for years!  My hope is that my family’s trials and tribulations as well as tips, excitement and fun will inspire others to learn that language they have always wanted to learn – and to do so together with their children and spouse!

If you are learning Spanish, like my family, then you must, must, must check out Mi Vida Loca.  It is exciting (the drama will keep you coming back episode after episode), fun and full of real-world examples.  My kids (ages 8, 7 and 5) love this language learning program as well.  It is a perfect way to learn Spanish together as a family.  Check it out!  This is how language learning should be, both at home and in the classroom!

Where Are the Discussions?

If you wonder why there doesn’t seem to be a lot of conversation taking place after each post, it is because the discussions are taking place on the Multilingual Living Facebook page and in the Multilingual Living Forum!

If you haven’t been to the Multilingual Living Facebook page lately, then you are missing out on something big!  The conversations are amazing!  I know I say this all the time but I just can’t get over what a fabulous group of people are hanging out there.  I can’t wait to read what has been added by everyone each and every day.  I’m definitely addicted!

I am delighted to see that people are taking advantage of the Multilingual Living Forum for sharing resources, support, tips and more!  There has been something new there every day – fantastic stuff!  The mutual understanding and support found there gives the place a wonderful feel.  If you haven’t had a chance to get to know Oliver and Alice, you will find them at the Forum a lot.  Having grown up trilingual and now raising their children multilingual, they are a fabulous resource to us all!  Head over to the forum and get into the discussions!
