Nellie: My daughter came home from school with her first "naughty word" in French (caca boudin)! I guess this means she is now officially integrated! Sept 22, 2017 5:54:43 GMT 9
Nellie: Adam - will watch the video as soon as I can (living circumstances not permitting right now - we are still in temp accommodation and I can't turn on volume) - looking forward to it! Sept 22, 2017 5:56:44 GMT 9
Mayken: Skyping with grandma last night had to be cancelled due to technological problems - I needed to talk my mom through a Skype update and her phone battery died. :-( Sept 25, 2017 20:45:42 GMT 9
Joanna: sorry Mayken...this is sad but funny as I'm sure many skype Grandparents have the same woes !(mine..) For us this weekend: potty training has led to great quality time reading and chatting, and some pretty hilarious ml questions Sept 26, 2017 6:20:44 GMT 9
Adam Beck: Mayken and Joanna, I can relate! My mother (Grandma) can't seem to get the sound on her computer working so when we Skype, we also have to use the telephone! :P Sept 26, 2017 6:36:03 GMT 9
Adam Beck: NEW! Please Help My Kids and Me Learn Spanish! bilingualmonkeys.com/help-my-kids-and-me-learn-spanish/ Sept 26, 2017 14:12:51 GMT 9
Mayken: Adam, and Joanna, it's good to know we're not alone in this! Sept 27, 2017 2:46:28 GMT 9
Joanna: Planning a long Christmas minority language visit, so exciting! Sept 30, 2017 14:46:01 GMT 9 *
Mayken: Yay! Skype is working again on my mom's tablet, meaning we can skype with ml grandma again! Oct 2, 2017 23:12:24 GMT 9
Mayken: The other day my mom (monolingual ml) called while my daughter and I were out, so Daddy (monolingual ML) answered. My mom was amazed to find out he isn't monolingual ML any more after all, and praised his active ml ability. Oct 3, 2017 23:28:39 GMT 9
Joanna: For each day my daughter is exposed to other people speaking English (here in France) I put a little star on the calendar...trying to fill it up! :) Oct 8, 2017 3:52:17 GMT 9 *
Adam Beck: Nice motivating idea, Joanna! And Mayken, thanks for sharing your good news on two fronts! :) Oct 9, 2017 7:11:50 GMT 9
Adam Beck: NEW! 19 Things You Need to Succeed At Raising a Bilingual Child bilingualmonkeys.com/19-things-you-need-to-succeed-at-raising-a-bilingual-child/ Oct 9, 2017 10:54:28 GMT 9
Adam Beck: EVEN NEWER! 18 Things You DON’T Need to Succeed At Raising a Bilingual Child bilingualmonkeys.com/18-things-you-dont-need-to-succeed-at-raising-a-bilingual-child/ Oct 9, 2017 10:55:20 GMT 9
Marisa: My daughter won't say number one in Spanish or English, but in German! She loves recognizing the number and saying it out loud... it sounds more like the word 'ice' in English, though, but it's 'eins.' Number 9, however, is 'nueve'. So funny! Oct 11, 2017 10:33:45 GMT 9
Wojtek: I've just received Evan's Moore skill sharpeners for my girl on pre-k level. I have to say it is so cool, my daughter loves it. She can cut, glue, color (www.evan-moor.com/p/19783/evan-moor-skill-sharpeners-trio-prek) Oct 11, 2017 18:30:27 GMT 9 *
Mayken: My dad's giving Adam's book to his Lithuanian friend's daughter, whose husband is sceptical about their little girl learning German. Oct 14, 2017 21:10:20 GMT 9
Adam Beck: Mayken, thank you for sharing my book! I hope it can be helpful to them! :) Oct 16, 2017 15:57:32 GMT 9
Marisa: Adam, another bilingual monkey is about to be born near me (one of my colleagues is giving birth tomorrow), so I also got her and her husband a copy of your book... this world needs more bilingual kids! :) Oct 18, 2017 0:06:43 GMT 9
Adam Beck: Many thanks, Marisa! In my humble opinion, more bilingual kids = more empathy in the world = a more peaceful planet. :) Oct 18, 2017 7:33:04 GMT 9
