If you have suggestions for topics I might write about in future blog posts at Bilingual Monkeys, please feel free to share them by replying below. Although I keep a list of ideas for possible posts--and other ideas often arise as life unfolds--it would still be helpful to hear what sort of topics are of interest or concern to you. I can't promise that I'll write about every suggestion, but I'd be grateful for your ideas! Thank you!

Forgive me if you've written on this already and I haven't seen it.... What about one on how to make contacts in the minority language? Such as starting a story time in your local library, playgroups on Meetup or through a flyer in the grocery store bulletin board? Bombarding strangers at the park when you hear them speaking your target language? That would even be a good challenge for this board.
I don't know how you come up with new things to write about after so many years of doing this!
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.
