I'm now back in Japan after a very fruitful trip to Europe. Over the course of five weeks, I visited nine countries, had homestays with 10 families, and recorded 15 interviews with parents for a new book I'm writing that gathers together "success stories" about raising bilingual and multilingual children.
If you'd like to learn more about my trip (and see photos, too), I've written a series of blog posts about it at Bilingual Monkeys.
Special thanks to everyone who helped make my trip such a fantastic experience. I can't tell you how wonderful it was to finally meet so many of you in person! We even had a lovely get-together of parents and children in a Paris park one sunny afternoon!
Adam Beck, the founder of Bilingual Monkeys and The Bilingual Zoo, is the author of "Maximize Your Child's Bilingual Ability"; "Bilingual Success Stories Around the World"; "I WANT TO BE BILINGUAL!"; "28 Bilingual English-Spanish Fairy Tales & Fables"; the fun-filled wordless picture book "Bearded Dragon, Home Alone"; and the award-winning humorous novel "How I Lost My Ear".
It's good to hear you're back home safely, Adam. It was wonderful meeting you in person at last and having you stay with us. My daughter loved playing (and talking!) with you. And that get-together was so much fun!
I'm truly sorry about that stupid transport strike.
Looking forward to reading more about your adventure!
Caro C.: We are expecting our second one... just found out last Thursday... I created a new thread to talk about the inquiries that start to arise on this subject... please visit: bilingualzoo.com/thread/1286/baby-2-oven
