You have just taken two very important steps: 1) get Adam's book which is full of ideas and a great motivator (I just finished reading it last weekend), and 2) join this forum, where lots of parents from all over the world (and with many different language combinations and situations) exchange ideas, resources, and encouragement.
Ahmet, welcome! That's a cute photo of you and your son!
I'm glad you feel you're off to a good start on your bilingual journey! The more exposure you can continue providing him on a daily basis, the more progress you'll surely experience over the years ahead.
Thank you for ordering my book--I hope it can serve as a helpful source of support to your efforts, along with my blog and this forum. Because English is my target language, too, and I've worked with English materials for a long time, as both a teacher and parent, I regularly make suggestions for useful resources in this language. For example, in the CATEGORIES menu, located on the right sidebar of my blog, you can access dozens of posts about "Recommended Resources" (children's books, magazines, music, etc.).
Ahmet, please enjoy my book! And if you find value in it, perhaps others in Turkey would, too. I'd be grateful if you could share my work with colleagues and friends.
I send my best bilingual wishes from Japan to Turkey!
Adam Beck is the founder of Bilingual Monkeys and The Bilingual Zoo, and the author of the book "Maximize Your Child's Bilingual Ability", praised worldwide by parents and experts in the field. Available at Amazon amzn.to/22XKuCt, the global Amazon sites, and other booksellers.
I love the forum. I'm sure I will find useful information and ideas.
It's really good to be in touch with parents from all around the world. The best part is having a chance to directly take opinions and advice from Adam.
In my country raising your child as bilingual is not much known or practiced. I think I will get a lot of help from the forum and the book during this journey. Also, I hope I will inspire some people around me.
By the way I got an email which informs me that my book has shipped. I can't wait!
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.
