Hi, I’d love this book for our little family as my husband and I are both born Czech (so Czech is my kids maternal tongue even though they we born and grew up in Britain), living in Australia and our kids are going to a German school and we have a Japanese babysitter to whom we speak only in Japanese. Languages are very important to us and multilingualism is both a hobby and a necessity. This book would definitely help.

17 Joyaudevie February 21, 2014 at 12:42 am

Be Bilingual! What a great way for me to share bilingualism with our growing bilingual community!

18 Jóia February 21, 2014 at 12:56 am

I would be thrilled to get this book. We are raising our little ones in three languages and could definitely use the info on the book. Thank you!

19 Corinne February 21, 2014 at 1:06 am

This looks like a great book. We are raising trilingual boys (French, English, German) who are now 8 & 10. I have been reading on bilingualism ever since I first found out I was pregnant with my first. I’m of the school of thoughts that you could never read/learn too much about a subject… ;)

I’m trying to raise multilingual children, however need some practical tips on how to create the need for them to use Spanish with me and Greek with their father, instead of always answering in English.

22 Rebecca Lovell February 21, 2014 at 3:05 am

Help! Now that we have moved to Australia, we have noticed our German is getting rustier and rustier. I would love some advice on how to keep kids interested in their mother tongue when ABSOLUTELY NO-ONE around speaks another language, let alone German.

We’d love to win this! As an American married to an Italian but living in the US, sometimes we get caught up in the everyday English speaking world. Even my husband comes home from work and keeps up in English. Any help would be great!

Recently found out about your website and newsletter (just subscribed). We are a Dutch/English couple living in Germany. We are raising our kids trilingual and would be great to get some help. There is not a lot of understanding about the complexities with the Kindergarten or schools here so any information that could help would be hugely appreciated. Thank you.

38 Heidi M February 23, 2014 at 5:48 pm

I am always looking for ideas and like-minded literature to help me my raise my child in a multilingual home as well as open up the world of language to my students and other children who aren’t as “linguistically lucky” as we are.

My partner and I are trying to have children at the moment, and this book would be valuable as a guide to raising the future little ones with one of the greatest treasures we can give them: multilingualism! We are both bilingual native speakers living in a country with a fifth language, and it’s a struggle to figure out which languages we will use with the kids.

54 Christa March 5, 2014 at 12:36 pm

I would love to win this as my children want to learn another language and this would help.

55 Lena McAulay March 5, 2014 at 11:04 pm

We are raising our 17 month old baby bilingually but as we don’t really know anyone who has done it we would appreciate practical tips.

I would love a copy of the book because i live in a region that is not very linguistically diverse and it would give me fresh ideas for maintaining both languages.

I would love to get my hands on a copy of this book – I currently teach the Bilingual (English/Japanese) Grade 1 Class in an international school in China and am always on the lookout for tips to encourage their language acquisition. I also produce informational materials for parents to assist with continuing the language learning at home so am always happy to find new resources to recommend. Thank you!

I would love to win this book! I am an English speaking mum living in France with their French speaking father. Having an older son and twin boys close in age, I have been very surprised how differently each individual child has developed billingually and the different challenges they have faced or are still trying to conquer. I am always looking for advice and information, so this book would be a fantastic addition to our home library. With many friends in the same situation, I expect they will want to read it too.

75 David Orman March 6, 2014 at 1:57 pm

Hey,

I think it could be helpful in raising our bilingual kid (Portuguese/German – in his way to trilingualism, given his interest in the English my wife and I speak with each other).

Thx!

86 Aliya March 6, 2014 at 2:47 pm

Hi! My name is Aliya. My mother tongue is Kazakh (spoken by about 8 mln people). However, I live in US, and my husband is Bengali and we speak English to each other. There are no strong Kazakh communities or Kazakh Sunday schools around here. So I will be on my own in my endeavor to teach my kid Kazakh. I was thinking to follow OPOL. However, another language I speak fluently is Russian, and I wanted to teach it to my kid too, maybe not with the same intensity as Kazakh, since I want Kazakh to be more dominant, at least before school. I need this book to guide me in my journey. Thanks!

87 Melissa March 6, 2014 at 3:18 pm

This book would give me some wonderful ideas on how to integrate our 2nd and third languages into our family.

88 Alex March 6, 2014 at 4:19 pm

I have a two year old son and I am working on raising him bilingual. I would love to get the book to help guide me through this journey. I’ve had argument with my husband about raising our son bilingual before he enters school, he says that this will confuse him, but I refuse to believe that. The more information I can gather the better I can help my son.
Thanks!
