Over the last 3+ years my wife and I have been on a linguistic and cultural journey as we have formed our life together. When we first started dating, I needed to learn a lot:

…Her language (Spanish)

…Her culture (Mexican), and

…everything else that goes with meeting your future spouse.

Things became slightly more complicated when she got pregnant… now the learning curve was steeper.

Having children is a life-changing event, and deciding how to raise them is a very personal decision. We decided to raise him bilingually, and then we found we had to defend that point, to a certain degree, to others.

I scoured the internet for information on raising bilingual children, the benefits of being bilingual, bilingualism in general, pros and cons, speech development, brain development, etc…

After reading countless books, articles, websites, forums, and anything else I could find, I had amassed quite a bit of information on the topic. This prompted me to start this blog, LivingBilingual, to help consolidate the information that is out there into one easy-to-find place.

I send out a weekly newsletter with new info, blog posts, and other fun stuff. Get it straight to your email with titles and summaries of the posts. Read the interesting ones, ignore the rest. It’s that easy!
