Would love to win as I am sure it has tons of great advice for raising bilingual kids- I have two boys close in age {one which already has a language delay due to muscle/tongue weakness it seems} and they will be going through the Japanese school system so I have to work with them at home to keep up their English! Thanks!

I follow via RSS, would love to get a copy of the book, because we will be raising children in the very near future and am at loss how to tackle the problem. I am Dutch, my wife Brazilian, and we converse in English. At the moment we live in Brasil and education is quite expensive here, so hope the book can helps us out to get us started. Thanks for the blog !!!

Hi! I would like to receive a copy of the book because:

1. I was raised bilingually (Dutch & English) while growing up in Africa,
2. I write a blog: DrieCulturen “all about children growing up in other cultures”. I would like to write a review of the book and post it on my blog. I have noticed that the posts on language learning & kids are well read.
3. I would love to read the book myself.
4. I am surrounded by friends raising multilingual children!

Thanks.

I would LOVE to win a copy of this book! My wife and I are raising our first child who has just reached 9 months old and is rapidly getting into the language gig. My wife is French and I’m a speaker of Japanese, though we mostly speak English around the house. We are trying to use all of them with him as much as we can, but getting some real developmental insight would be greatly useful and very timely!

I’m amongst those who ‘Like’ you on Facebook and I follow on Twitter.

Cheers!

Hello,

I am a subscriber and follow your posts on facebook very closely. I have been touched by bilingualism since birth as my mother was bilingual but never spoke her other language, Swedish to me. I always felt I missed out on a great experience and after getting married to a Frenchman did not want the same thing to happen to my children. Before they were born I spent a year on my master’s thesis on bilingualism and have since then put my findings into action with Emma and Sara who are to my delight very fluent in both Finnish and French and seem to have embraced both cultures as well. It has not been without effort on our part and I have written down a lot of notes about the process over the years. I have recently felt a need to do something with these notes and study the subject further. I have bought recent books and have noticed that many things that the linguists say are somewhat different from 12 years ago. Back then I read a book by Colin Baker and would be very very interested to read this one too, both for my study on family bilingualism, but also as a teacher of English and French as foreign languages.

I like you on FB and receive your newsletter, trying to establish bilingualism in my family.

23 Marnie December 16, 2011 at 4:36 pm

I am a bilingual teacher and raising my daughter to be bilingual. I do not have the book and could really use it both at work and home. I am always trying to learn more strategies and approaches and share them with my parents as I advocate for helping everyone to become bilingual.

My husband and I are spanish speakers living in Portugal, we would like to know the best way to introduce our three month old daughter to both languages without causing her any conflict.
