I was just bumped into your post Elodie and it is simply wonderful. Sometimes, I feel that people around me, and those in the medical sector in particular, are very prejudiced against bilingualism. So it is lovely to listen to this video by a professional from the respected CNRS.
This particularly strikes a chord in me as we are currently going through a bit of a rough patch, the doctor from our local PMI (for non French speakers, it is a French social body dedicated to Mothers and small Children) having detected a pronunciation with my daughter. And obviously, trilingualism is not very well looked upon. As the psycholinguist in your video said, I believe little bilingual kids need a little extra time.
SheilaC: I am concern about our upcoming big change to Public school with all English teaching and minimal Spanish. We have been lucky until now with Spanish speaking Nanny and Spanish immersion preschool. We are doing 2-day per week with Spanish after school.

Amy: @sheilac, I suggest you create an actual thread on the "Questions & Concerns" board, so fellow Zoo Keepers can help you with your concerns. 256 characters is too little to discuss something that is so important to your heart

Mayken: Adam Beck, thanks for that very interesting and timely post - it justifies the large order for ml books and DVDs I'm about to place in view of my daughters upcoming birthday!

Adam Beck: Great to hear this, Mayken! And happy birthday to both yours and mine! (They have the same birthday, don't they?) And if anyone missed that post, here's the link once more...

Mayken: It's our last night in Canada. We've said goodbye to our English-speaking and bilingual English/French friends but we have lots of memories and souvenirs. Let's see how I can keep up the momentum back home.
