No New Posts Talk to the Monkeys!

My two monkeys, Lulu and Roy (now 19 and 16), want to take part in our community, too! So feel free to ask them any questions you like--about their lives and their experience as bilingual children--and I'll have them respond. Your questions can be addressed to them as a pair, or individually.
