Bilingual By Choice is an essential resource for parents wanting to bring their children up to be fluent in more than one language. Full of practical strategies and techniques for any family or instructor to ensure that children stay engaged and active in every language available to them, the book presents a wealth of specific activities and games to show families not only how to teach their children more than one language, but also help them retain and develop those skills, both in and outside of the home, as they grow. The book also deals with the obstacles to sustaining a second language, including unsupportive relatives, lack of resources, issues at school, frequent relocations, special needs and discrimination, countering each with the author's firsthand experience with both sides of the growing-up bilingual journey, as a child and as a parent.
'Bravo, Virginie, for showing us the way to helping our children retain their language heritage as they grow.' Joshua A. Fishman, PhD, Professor Emeritus at Yeshiva University and Stanford University
'Not only does she dispel common anxiety-producing myths, but she also gives clear, practical ways for how parents can help
