From time to time I make a "bilingual meme" and share it on my Facebook page. The response there has always been positive (sometimes they reach over 100,000 people!), so I thought I'd gather them together for a little gallery here at The Bilingual Zoo. And when I have a new meme, I'll add it to these.
I hope you like them! Feel free to reply by telling me your favorites!

Wojtek: I found sample Eiken tests on grade 5 and 4 (There was Adam's article) and did the first part with my daughter (20 questions). On Grade 5 she did 16 of 20 correctly and on grade 4: 12 of 20. Not so bad though. She failed those where grammar was included.

Adam Beck: Wojtek, your daughter is still very young so I would say those are really positive results! Your efforts are clearly producing a lot of progress. Good for you, and good for your daughter!

Wojtek: Big thanks, Adam. Those tests on grade 5 are so basic but anyway they prove that my girl understands them and knows the answers. That was quite interesting experience.

Wojtek: Congratulations on your book, Adam! I read the beginning on Amazon and as always I have the impression you took several pages from the dictionary with a range of sophisticated words and just put them in. That's why the book will be very valuable for me.

Adam Beck: Wojtek, thanks! Even if you're unfamiliar with some of the vocabulary, I think the lively story will carry you through the book. I hope you enjoy it, and also find it useful for your English!

Mayken: Adam, your guest poster sounds just as crazy as you - and I mean that as a compliment!

Adam Beck: You're right, Mayken! And I told him that!

Amy: I totally agree with you Mayken!

Wojtek: I've just ordered k12 pre-k program for the next whole year. Probably will be very demanding but hopefully, it will give me and my daughter lots of fun as there are lots of online activities too...

Adam Beck: Kristin, I hope you find it helpful and encouraging! I look forward to your impressions!

Mayken: Last night I dreamed I was on a package tour in a Russian-speaking country, talking to a hotel employee mixing up my (little remaining) Russian and my (basic) Italian. Woke up thinking "квартира in Russian doesn't mean the same as camera in Italian"!
