Friends, I have some really exciting news! My new novel, How I Lost My Ear, is now available worldwide!
I actually started writing this book 10 years ago, before I began Bilingual Monkeys and wrote the book Maximize Your Child’s Bilingual Ability. So it was a really long project and I’m so happy and relieved that I’ve finally crawled across the finish line! In fact, the story itself was basically completed a year ago but then the process of illustrating it took all of 2017…because there are 140 illustrations! The illustrator is the British artist Simon Farrow and he did an incredible job. His illustrations are wonderful!
So I’m thrilled with how the book turned out and I’m eager to share it with you! It’s a really fun story: a humorous, high-spirited adventure that can appeal to all ages (7~107)!
For all the details (and a peek at the illustrations, too), please see this page…
Of course, this book is fiction and different from my nonfiction book about raising bilingual kids, but both books will now serve the same purpose in helping me sustain and strengthen my work at Bilingual Monkeys and The Bilingual Zoo and keep these popular resources free for everyone.
So, as with Maximize Your Child’s Bilingual Ability, when you lend your support to the success of How I Lost My Ear, this can benefit us both as well as many others out in the world.
Friends, please read it, please review it, and please share it through social media and word-of-mouth. Your help is so important and so appreciated. (I’d love your personal feedback, too.)
Many, many thanks! And happy reading!

Mayken: After writing a letter in the ML to her new friend for whom it is the ml, my daughter is now on the phone with her friend from ml country. (And hiding in her room with my phone. No more phone cords to hold her back.)

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!

Undraa: A big congrats from my end to you for your new book Adam!

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!
