Thank you very much for your reply. It's good to hear from someone who has experience in this.
I already use flashcards and my son seems interested in them. I believe cartoons will be very helpful too. We decided to wait until he is 24 months old then we will enjoy the cartoons and animation movies together. I'm excited about it too.
I'm teaching my son English as a second language and I use OPOL. We play together in English, I read him books, we sing songs together and we do activities like that. I mean I talk to him in English all the time now.
A few days ago one of my friends told me about the "English learning sets". There are plenty of them in the market from different publishers. Should I use one of them? Has anybody tried any of them?
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!
Amy: Beautiful video Adam...and so true, as always! :). You enjoy your hiatus, and we look forward to reading you again in August! Otsukaresama deshita (thank you for your hard work)!

Mayken: My daughter's ML report card has the same percentage of A's as the ml one but surprisingly the non-A's are not in the same categories. Anyway, she's off to grade 2 at the bilingual school! (After well-deserved and ml-rich holidays!)

Wojtek: Back from journey from Croatia. It wasn't English speaking country but ... I was with my daughter for the whole 2 weeks 24/7!

Wojtek: Being all day with daughter makes really difference! She spoke definitely more and I had more chance to correct her, suggest better phrases, etc. That was great!

Mayken: Wojtek, a lot of one-on-one time is one of the perks of holidays, no matter where.

Mayken: Two playdates with classmates from my 7-year-olds ml class this weekend, and the kids and parents all spoke ml the entire time! ml interaction with other kids is precious during summer holidays. Very happy
