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. As an Early Years Teacher we teach everything from mathematics to music and I have already seen great results using music in the classroom so would love to make my teaching more effective. 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!

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!

Hi, I’m a mum of a baby who’s trilingual (Egyptian, Hungarian,English) and I would like to get as much info & help about how I can help him the most!
Thanks, Diana

I’m married to a Tunisian who speaks Arabic. I am anglophone, and we speak French together. We want to have a child and raise him or her to be fluent in all three languages.

22 Jessica March 6, 2014 at 11:44 pm

When learning foreign languages, I found music an extremely enjoyable and successful tool in expanding my vocabulary and understanding of how grammar works. I would love to learn more justifications/reasons why music should be used to help kids and adults become multilingual!

I am a new member of Multilingual Living. I am the product of a multilingual upbringing and education. Nowadays, I am a Kindergarten teacher and coordinator of a Dual Language Program (English / French) in an International School (St John’s) located in Waterloo, Belgium. I try to promote the importance of Mother Tongue and multilingualism. I think that through learning languages and showing all children that all languages are important we will help the children to become open-minded, tolerant, internationaly minded global citizens. I think that when you learn a language you don’t only learn it but also learn a new culture and other points of view. It broadens your mind and your own language and culture.
I love languages and although I am lucky to speak a few fluently (French, Dutch/Flemish, English, Japanese) and have knowledge of others I hope that I will be able to learn more in the future. I have raised my children as multilinguals. It wasn’t easy but it was worth it.
I would love to get in contact with Christina Reid and find out which resources she is using to promote language learning in her 1st grade class.
I really would like to read this book as I already had a taste of it by reading the Chapter 2 on the Multilingual living website.

I’m a language teacher and a mum to a 3-year old Polish-English girl. This book would help me with raising my daughter in both languages.

I am an Early Childhood Educator in Care for Newcomer Children language program for newcomers to Canada. I know how important and helpful music and rhymes are in learning a new language. I will be really happy and excited to have the book and use it in my everyday work.

35 Tracy March 10, 2014 at 9:17 am

I am multilingual myself and I am raising my 2 sons in a multilingual environment, as well. I have always been an advocate of multilingual learning and host an international Italian-English discussion group . At our home, we also study a few other languages but they remain minor. Learning multiple languages from birth is an easier way, but all methods of acquisition are welcomed and there are many ways to make that more entertaining.

36 Kirsten March 17, 2014 at 9:09 am

I’m brand new to this site, and need serious help! Is it possible to become fluent in a language that neither parent speaks and don’t have anyone around them that speaks the language they want to speak?! I value multiple language speaking highly, and have 3 children under 4. I need resources and ideas!

We are a very musical family…my kids are dancing all the time…and I think any method that combines music and language learning would not only be useful but awesome.
