Mayken: Thanks Amy! Bonne rentrée to you too! My daughter has ml on Tuesday mornings (tomorrow!) and Thursday afternoons. Sept 5, 2017 5:39:39 GMT 9
Adam Beck: NEW! This Is Embarrassing, But It’s a Story That Could Benefit Your Bilingual Journey (And Your Teeth) :D bilingualmonkeys.com/this-is-embarrassing/ Sept 6, 2017 7:27:34 GMT 9
Amy: First Wednesday at home magic: ml2 bathed home and catching my 5 year old singing along her music player in ml2.... Bilingual bliss! Only you fellow bilingual parents could understand this ;) Sept 6, 2017 21:05:46 GMT 9
Mayken: Planning to send my daughter to ml school again during the next holidays. But it's ok, she's looking forward to it! Sept 8, 2017 4:45:12 GMT 9
Mayken: We had our parents meetings with the ml teacher, my daughter will have a lot of work this year! One parent asked "which kids actually do speak ml at home?" Does that mean many of them don't??? Sept 13, 2017 5:02:26 GMT 9
Nellie: Mayken - my daughter is a lot younger than yours (just starting PS), but in her class there are two children with Spanish-speaking parents, but apparently neither of them actually speak it...disappointing! Sept 13, 2017 6:28:10 GMT 9
Amy: Nellie, these 2 kids might simply be passive bilinguals, and as you know the penny might simply drop one day and they'll start using Spanish... ;) Sept 13, 2017 17:05:33 GMT 9
Mayken: In our ml class the kids are required to have a high level of ml. In class they only speak ml (this year there's a penalty for speaking ML!). I assumed they all speak ml with the ml parent at home. (I've known those kids for 2 years.) Sept 13, 2017 23:42:56 GMT 9
Nellie: Yes I'm sure you're right and they are passive bilinguals! And they are young. I certainly hope by your daughter's age that my little one will be speaking ml1 with me - have already seen a lot of progress over the last week! The penny is dropping! Sept 14, 2017 5:51:52 GMT 9
Patricia: Has anyone encountered studies, or personal accounts, of bilingualism (or multilingualism) playing a role in delayed speech? Sept 15, 2017 1:31:58 GMT 9
Adam Beck: Patricia, please complete your Profile (see my "welcome message" for guidance), then post your questions to the forum boards. Thank you. :) Sept 15, 2017 6:14:15 GMT 9
Adam Beck: NEW VIDEO WITH MY SON! Another Fun, Productive Project for Language Exposure

Patricia: :-) Will do, just saw the message. Thank you, Patricia Sept 15, 2017 6:38:22 GMT 9
Mayken: Love the video, Adam! Love your crazy ideas! Sept 19, 2017 5:48:02 GMT 9
Adam Beck: Thanks a lot, Mayken! Please check it out, everyone! bilingualmonkeys.com/another-project-for-language-exposure/ (And my son would be thrilled if you left your "review"!) Sept 19, 2017 6:33:56 GMT 9
Marisa: I have to say, Adam, I was cracking up when I watched the video :) Thanks for sharing! Sept 19, 2017 23:43:31 GMT 9
Adam Beck: Happy to hear this, Marisa! :) Sept 20, 2017 10:25:01 GMT 9
Adam Beck: NEW! Foreign Language Rights Now Available for Translations of This Popular Book on Raising Bilingual Children bilingualmonkeys.com/foreign-language-rights-for-book-on-raising-bilingual-children/ Sept 21, 2017 14:11:15 GMT 9
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
