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.
Thank you Elodie!

Wojtek: Yesterday my daughter used a Polish word in an English sentence. From time to time she does it (don't know if I should be happy about that), but anyway what was amusing about that, she said it with an English accent!

Wojtek: I feel the English accent in our monolingual family has seemed to be something unreachable but in that mixed sentence, I heard the difference. It surprised me slightly.

Mayken: Adam Beck, Amy, she got a lot of ml exposure but there's only so many times I can watch a Bibi & Tina DVD. Glad she's back at school today.

Mayken: My daughter's school had the annual lantern pageant yesterday. It always moves me to tears when I see the kids stand and belt out the songs in our ml. This year, the ml kids also recited a short poem on St Martin.
