I was recently interviewed by Julia Grey of The Bilingual Kids YouTube channel and enjoyed responding to a wide range of interesting questions about my personal and professional experience involving bilingual and multilingual children. Here are just some of the questions we touched on in our lively hour-long conversation…
What languages have I studied myself?
What is my children’s third language, after Japanese and English?
What 3 key reasons motivated my own bilingual journey with my kids?
When did my kids start speaking and what were their first words?
What was my biggest worry in my own experience raising bilingual kids?
What are the 2 most important things new parents should do?
What is my advice for non-native parents with a bilingual aim?
What is my advice for parents seeking success with less common languages?
What, to me, is the most “realistic goal” for parents raising bilingual kids?
What is the one universal thing for all families when it comes to bilingual success?
