Multilingual Living
December 2012
Dear Multilingual Living Friends,
So sorry for the lack of newsletter emails at the end of this year! After Language Challenge 180, I kind of lost steam. We had a ton of fun focusing on weekly language activities but it took more work than I had anticipated.

Starting in January, we will have regular newsletter email again. So thank you for staying signed up! The new year will give us the push we need to get back into the swing of things.

In the meantime, we are full swing in the holiday spirit here in our home. We hope you are having a wonderful time of year with your family as well.

Just in case you haven’t yet picked out each and every gift on your list, we would like to suggest Last Minute Multilingual Holiday Gifts from three fantastic companies that you might want to check out. We think their products are wonderful and just what our little bilinguals adore. Check out the recommendations and let us know what you think.

Finally, if you are looking for a unique gift for that special someone in your life, look no further than ALL of the back issues of Multilingual Living Magazine. Experts in family multilingualism share their knowledge and wisdom in each and every issue! Plus, you will be supporting Multilingual Living 100%!

Happy (multilingual) Holidays to everyone!

It’s Going Back Home That Hurts

The most read post this year was one about returning home after living abroad and the uncertainty that it brings.

We may not know it but Reverse Culture Shock can be worse than initial culture shock (at least it was for me). Read the post and share your experiences in the comments section:
