Just wanted to mention that there is a facebook group called Playdate Network France...great idea to become a member and put yourself on the members map. Unfortunately there is only one other member on the map in my area, but most other areas have lots of people. It's just an informal group and way to organise playdates in your area...albeit probably in English, but Mayken you might be able to find German speakers...

Thanks Joanna, I'll check it out. Though I do hope that with the bilingual school starting in September, my daughter will make friends among the German kids there (we've already met 2 at the open door day and have known a third one for years).
I live in Seine et Marne near Disneyland and I'm trying to make my boy (he's 1 year old) bilingual in French-English. I'm a French native-speaker and I would like to meet some native-English mums if there are any? Or maybe just talking via Skype?
Mayken: My daughter's ml homework for this week included baking a cake - there's a cake in the story they read, and after each chapter there are questions and tasks, and the current chapter has the step-by-step recipe. She's to bring the cake to school too.

Amy: What a nice original homework! Makes such a change from standard homework, and I wouldn't be surprised if kids remember more from it! I like your bilingual school Mayken! Lucky little girl, and lucky Mummy!

Mayken: ml cake homework update: About half the class brought cake (8 out of 15), not all of them were the cake from the book recipe, but my daughter's was the most popular. (Maybe because we added food colouring and topped it with chocolate icing and smarties?)

Adam Beck: Cake is definitely my favorite kind of homework!

Jana: One of the best parts of having kids in bilingual school was getting Mother's Day cards in two languages! (With less-than-perfect spelling in both!) Ha!

Amy: (Twice) Lucky you Jana! So nice to read exciting pieces of news like yours!

Mayken: I still have that to look forward to, Jana! Mother's Day in our ML country is two weeks later, and the ml teacher goes along with that date. (It was last Sunday in our ml country.)
