The Huffington Post – Bea Sieradzka

“I’m not going to make any New Year’s resolutions. Nope. No more. Instead, I’ve made a plan. We all know what happens to most of our New Year’s resolutions. Plans are plans, though.

For the last six months, with a changing regularity (read: rarely) I have been writing about his language adventure. Even though my idea from the start was to raise him bilingual and for all those years I have been doing it as a very conscious parent, only when I actually started writing about my son’s language adventure I began to truly understand what a precious gem it is to help your child speak more languages.

I wanted him to be as proficient an English speaker when he starts school as his English peers.”(more)
