“Embraces the subject with more global reach than any I’ve come across before. A friendly, readable book that provides an intelligent and insightful blend of research-based advice and practical, real-world ideas.” –Adam Beck, blogger of Bilingual Monkeys Children may be like sponges when it comes to language learning, but the key to having them develop into active bilinguals in all their languages is to make it fun and useful in the daily life. Be Bilingual is full of practical, creative, and fun ideas backed up by the latest research. It shows families how to make multilingualism work in their busy lives. Multilingual families from all around the world have contributed by sharing their best resources and tips on how to make growing up with two or more languages an enjoyable experience. Parent friendly and informative, the book has ideas for families across a wide range of different multilingual situations: mixed-language marriages, expats, international adoption, single parent- and trilingual families, and parents who speak a non-native language to their children.
