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!
SheilaC: I am concern about our upcoming big change to Public school with all English teaching and minimal Spanish. We have been lucky until now with Spanish speaking Nanny and Spanish immersion preschool. We are doing 2-day per week with Spanish after school.

Amy: @sheilac, I suggest you create an actual thread on the "Questions & Concerns" board, so fellow Zoo Keepers can help you with your concerns. 256 characters is too little to discuss something that is so important to your heart

Mayken: Adam Beck, thanks for that very interesting and timely post - it justifies the large order for ml books and DVDs I'm about to place in view of my daughters upcoming birthday!

Adam Beck: Great to hear this, Mayken! And happy birthday to both yours and mine! (They have the same birthday, don't they?) And if anyone missed that post, here's the link once more...

Mayken: It's our last night in Canada. We've said goodbye to our English-speaking and bilingual English/French friends but we have lots of memories and souvenirs. Let's see how I can keep up the momentum back home.
