Adam Beck: Mayken, I love that little anecdote! Wonderful in all ways! :) And Wojtek, I'm happy to hear your good news! Your bilingual dream is gradually coming true, isn't it? :) May 10, 2017 5:54:00 GMT 9
Wojtek: Thanks Adam, gradually yes, she speaks more and more but .. you know, could be better. I think I will have to look again into the armory which is in your book :) May 10, 2017 6:13:44 GMT 9 *
Mayken: Yay, Wojtek, that's great news! I hope she likes the language kindergarten as much as my daughter likes her bilingual school! May 10, 2017 23:31:50 GMT 9
Amy: Delighted to say our application to an English Wednesday School for our eldest daughter has gone through first stage! :) Next step: entrance test! So nervous! :) May 11, 2017 5:09:14 GMT 9
Adam Beck: Amy, congratulations and best of luck! :) May 11, 2017 15:33:23 GMT 9
Adam Beck: NEW POST: How to Deal with Unsolicited Advice, and Address Other Difficulties, on Your Bilingual Journey http://bilingualmonkeys.com/unsolicited-advice-and-other-difficulties-on-your-bilingual-journey/ May 11, 2017 15:34:11 GMT 9 *
Wojtek: Mayken: Thanks! That kindergarten is far better then the last one. And we all love it. English has time frames everyday. It is not like they communicate with children in English throughout the day but it's the best place in our region. May 11, 2017 17:52:03 GMT 9 *
Wojtek: 1st week's gone. Tonight when we sat in the dim light just before getting to bed she sang the song for me she learnt in her new place. It was like: "I love my daddy. Here's a kiss and a hug for you. Thank you daddy for all you do". I wept... May 13, 2017 4:51:38 GMT 9 *
Ahmet: Hey Adam! My book has arrived (https://goo.gl/photos/kS4Lg5TTTeXuEvhm8), I've almost read half of it already. It's wonderful :) May 13, 2017 21:21:26 GMT 9 *
Adam Beck: Ahmet, I'm so glad you're enjoying it! Your positive reaction (including your fun photo) means a lot to me! Many thanks! :) May 13, 2017 22:19:28 GMT 9
Amy: Wojtek, enjoy those magical moments. You are a very lucky Daddy. :) May 14, 2017 1:09:34 GMT 9 *
Wojtek: Amy: Thanks! :) I am a very lucky daddy! :) May 15, 2017 22:50:12 GMT 9 *
Mayken: My daughter brought her ml workbook home recently, and that inspired me to create my own worksheets for her. I posted them on my blog: http://www.cow-pla.net/wordpress/tag/work-sheets (Don't be too harsh on my drawing skills, please. :) ) May 19, 2017 5:21:25 GMT 9 *
Adam Beck: Great, Mayken! And I bet your daughter enjoyed your cute, creative efforts! :) May 19, 2017 6:14:32 GMT 9
Nellie: My daughter has started asking (in ML/Spanish) for me to sing her songs in ml2 (English)! Several times today and yesterday she asked for "la canción en inglés", while just a month ago she would scream if I did so! This seems like progress! May 20, 2017 10:00:13 GMT 9 *

Amy: That is amazing news Nellie!! Go for it! :) May 20, 2017 21:24:10 GMT 9
Mayken: That's great news, Nellie! May 23, 2017 4:43:34 GMT 9
Adam Beck: Nellie, yes, this is an excellent example of progress! Good for you both! :) May 23, 2017 5:58:08 GMT 9
