Hi Adam. I hope you’re doing great. I finished reading “Bilingual Success Stories Around the World” this week. By coincidence, on the day after I watched your live interview on the Raising Multilinguals channel.
I just wanted to tell you that your book inspired me so much. I’m Brazilian and an English teacher (I’m off work since my daughter was born). She is 1 year and 5 months old right now. At the time I got your book, she was around 6 months and I wasn’t much confident about raising a bilingual child at home, despite having worked in bilingual schools!
Anyway, I’ve read your book very slowly and I got amazed about all those families’ stories. It was a great push for me!
I started talking to her in English when she turned 1. It’s unbelievable how much she understands and enjoys the songs and things we’ve done together.
Thanks! Keep up the great work!
Larissa, thanks so much for taking the time to share this with me. Your kind message made my day—my whole weekend, in fact!
I’m really happy to hear that my book has been a source of encouragement to you in your efforts with your daughter. It sounds like you’re making good progress so please keep up your daily persistence and your long-term perseverance over the years ahead. I look forward to hearing more happy news from you as time goes by.
And if you wouldn’t mind sharing your positive impressions of the book with others, including in a short review at Amazon, I’d be very grateful for your support.
Larissa, I send my best bilingual wishes from Japan to Brazil!
Thanks Adam. I hope to share with you a successful family story in the future.
I’ve just written a short review at Amazon using my husband’s account. And I’m surely going to share my impressions with friends.
Regards from Brazil
Larissa, many thanks for your kind support! And I look forward to hearing about your happy success story in the future! I’m cheering for you and your family!
It’s been great to watch you and find out that my efforts seem to comply with your approach and findings. I’d love to receive a copy of your book, but my e-mail to you with questions and answers has already been returned twice. Anyways, congratulations on your awesome work so far. Best regards,
Anna, I got your email so I’m not sure what happened! And I just replied with your prize!
