I’m thrilled to welcome the Polish edition of Maximize Your Child’s Bilingual Ability to the world! (In Polish the title is Podaruj dziecku szanse na dwujezycznosc.) This is the first translated edition of the book and, honestly speaking, I never imagined an exciting development like this when I wrote the original English edition, which was published in 2016. Back then, I was only hoping that the book in English, which was based on my experience as a teacher and parent of bilingual children, would speak to at least a few parents out there and lend some useful support to their bilingual aim.
But in the years since, the book has far exceeded these modest expectations. The English version has been read by thousands of parents, all over the world, and has resonated deeply with many of them. They have found the book to be an empowering source of ideas and inspiration for realizing greater success and joy on their family’s bilingual journey.
I hope the Polish edition will empower readers in the same way, and help enable many more families to reach these rewarding heights of success and joy. If you know anyone who might like to read my book in Polish, please point them to this page at the publisher’s site…
And please know that, beyond the book—whether you read it in English or Polish—further support is always available through this blog and through my forum The Bilingual Zoo. (But in English, please! Sorry, I don’t speak Polish!)
Thank you! And my great gratitude to everyone who was involved in the realization of the Polish edition. No matter how many more translations of the book might be made in the future, I will always look fondly upon the Polish edition as the very first one!
