This blog provides information and discussion for parents raising bilingual children or thinking abotu doing so. I aim to provide information and advice based on the latest research, and integrated into how mobile/expat families live. I also aim to provide practical advice and tips on how to best plan for bilingualism, and how to take bilingualism with you when you leave your community of practice.

- About me: I am a Canadian educational consultant, living and working in the Netherlands. My focus is helping families successfully raise bilingual children, either through family languages or host country languages. I also work with schools who integrate large numbers of non-native speakers, doing teacher training, curriculum support and language policy planning. Finally, I work with mulit-national companies, educating parents about their language and school choices for their children. I also have three children who speak English, French and Dutch.
