Where does my passion for bilingualism come from?

multilingual parents raising children speaking nonnative English


The love, passion or interest for languages comes to each one of us in a different way. In my case, it was something that didnt come from me at the beginning. It came from my environment. It wasnt me the one who started to have the need of speaking other languages or the one who wanted to learn a new language for fun and pleasure.

The first few times I thought about having children and speaking to them in English, I had the main ideas clear and very few doubts. It seemed to me that it made sense, that it was interesting and that, just as I talk to my students or to other people in English, I would do it with my son.

Transitiniong my daughter from her cute pink potty to grown-up potty was not too fun or easy for her, she had grown to love her small potty and didn’t feel the need to transition to a grown up potty, or as we call it the toilet. The hardest part of the transition was getting her to clean herself with toilet paper instead of baby wipes she used. Thankfully I was able to convince her the toile ...

Recently we got the opportunity to visit Kriser’s Natural Pet, as a pet owner, I am somewhat disappointed to have never even known about Kriser’s or how close it is to my neighborhood.

To me, there ...
