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!

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!

Mayken: On the train from Paris to Cologne we sat next to another ml mother and daughter from our school! Only noticed when almost in Cologne. It's a small ML-ml world!

Amy: Got fleeting impression during Skype call with daughter on holiday at grandparents' in ml1 country, that her ml1 pronunciation has improved! She even seemed more confident speaking in ml2!

Mayken: During the traditional German Easter fire, my daughter met her friend from her school day in the ml school! So many birds with one stone! (Sorry for the birds ;))
