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...
English speaking Canadian Mom, French speaking Dad, happily transitioning to minority language at home (English) with our baby daughter in France.
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?
What's on your mind right now? Just type and hit "Enter" to share it here!
Adam Beck: Mayken, thank you for sharing my book! I hope it can be helpful to them!

Marisa: Adam, another bilingual monkey is about to be born near me (one of my colleagues is giving birth tomorrow), so I also got her and her husband a copy of your book... this world needs more bilingual kids!

Adam Beck: Many thanks, Marisa! In my humble opinion, more bilingual kids = more empathy in the world = a more peaceful planet.

Mayken: Follow-up on my daughter's visit at my old ml school: the headmistress suggested a penpal set-up between the class there and my daughter's class here. Let's see what my daughter's regular ml teacher says. I think that'd be cool. (The kids are in 2nd grade.
