It’s always great to learn new ways to instill another language.

5 Jose Luis March 17, 2014 at 11:03 am

Our family is trilingual: Russian, English and Spanish. My wife is native Russian speaker, I’m native Spanish and we communicate mostly using English. Our little son is exposed to the three languages all the time. We consider that multilingual environment is not only good in terms of learning laguages, but also in terms of sharing cultures. It’s great !!!

6 Inese March 17, 2014 at 11:13 am

We are a trilingual family and raising our kid in English, Mandarin and Latvian language setting. It’s great to see how the little one picks all these languages naturally, but it would never hurt to have extra tips and insight on raising trilingual kids. And the book really looks awesome!

I am about to have twins and my husband and I are planning to raise them as tri- if not quadri-lingual, so this book will be very helpful in finding out m ore about technique and process for doing this while still supporting healthy development. Between us we have 4 nationalities and want to expose our children to all four, eventually.

This book will be a heaven sent for our family as we are trying to raise our kids in multilingual environment. currently I speak Bahasa Indonesia to our kids and my husband speaks French. Between two of us, we speak English. Our eldest one learns English and Mandarin at a local preschool. Currently we live in Singapore. How do we improve her minority language skills once she is able to read and write in English? How do we give the same attention to the second child so she can have the same language skill level as her older sibling? I believe this book has the answer!

Thank you for being the source of information in raising multilingual kids. Without this website and FB page, we would probably have raised our kids in monolingual family, and that’s the saddest thing for my husband and I.

37 Nayr March 24, 2014 at 12:42 am

I have raised a trilingual son (English, French and Portuguese) and work with multilingual children. The more information I have about trilingualism the better as the parents I come into contact with, even though they have made the choice to bring their children up trilingual, still have doubts. I am also doing a PhD on trilingual children and their identities so all books and research I can find on teh subject is really useful.

At five years of age, our son, Miguel, is fully trilingual in Mandarin, English and Spanish. But we fully realize that doesn’t mean he’ll continue to increase his proficiency over time as he grows up in NYC.

We have found that recommendations from Multilingual Living are always valuable and thoughtful, as well as actionable and rooted on experience. Based on that and our online assessment of this title, we believe we would greatly profit from obtaining it.

Best,
Victor

41 Third Culture Mama March 24, 2014 at 8:18 pm

We were just talking this week about feeling at peace about adding a third language to our bilingual home now that our first child is two years of age. We feel like it is a good window for his developmental age. We know this decision will mean we will have our work cut out for us given our largely monolingual geographical context. But, looking at the summary of this book, I realize how many more questions will arise based on this decision. That is why we would LOVE to read this book and share it with anyone on a similar journey. Thank you!

Hello, I would really love to be able to read the book to get more tips and strategies on how to keep the third language (Spanish) that used to be the majority language when we lived in Argentina active also after coming back “home” when we already have 2 other languages at home. Thank you!
