Hola! I wasn't sure whether to post this here or under Questions or Concerns. I found Marianna DuBosque's website and podcast (The Bilingual Avenue) last fall and have been devouring all her episodes. It's given me a ton of encouragement and ideas! From what I can tell, she's been really consistent for years with producing new content and then stopped at the beginning of December. This sounds kind of silly, but does anyone know what has happened? I'm hoping she's not done sharing her amazing bilingual expertise with us!
Laura Catherine, I haven't spoken to Marianna in a while, so I don't clearly know, but she's needed to take breaks before so maybe she's on another temporary hiatus. Maintaining an active site like hers (she runs a premium community, too) is very demanding, particularly when you're raising children at the same time.
**My new book, "28 Bilingual English-Spanish Fairy Tales & Fables", is now available at booksellers worldwide!** Adam Beck is the author of the popular nonfiction books "Maximize Your Child's Bilingual Ability" and "I WANT TO BE BILINGUAL!" (illustrated by Pavel Goldaev) as well as the award-winning humorous novel "How I Lost My Ear" (illustrated by Simon Farrow).
Najwa: My eldest sings and verbalizes his figures/cars stories in an invented language that has English sounds and Italian accent. Is it his way to disconnect from his multilingual world?

Adam Beck: Najwa, it's hard to respond to your question without knowing the full details of the situation. I suggest starting a thread at a suitable board and offering as much information about these circumstances as you can.

Marisa: Merry Christmas to you, Adam, and to everyone! I also hope 2021 is better than this year we're about to end. It shouldn't be too difficult, right?
