Just a monolingual mom raising a trilingual kid.
February 7, 2017
If you’re like me, you’ve invested tons of time and money into teaching your child a second language. So, the question becomes, how will you document their progress? When my son was a toddler, he would come home with fun crafts or coloring pages in Chinese. As any mom would do, I tried to save every little piece to help him practice the words and for me to keep an eye on what he was learning and mastering.

I recently received a beautifully designed world map from Pictureta. When we took it out of the long cardboard tube it was shipped in, my son’s eyes immediately lit up and he was instantly curious to know what the colors meant, what the words said, and about all of the animals on the map.

I am happy to share a guest blog from Marie! She’s a dedicated “language mom”, who has had to find creative ways to expose and teach her young children, Regina (3) and Vincent (2) both French and Korean.

With busy schedules and crazy rush hour traffic, going outside of the home for language lessons can be challenging. Instead of giving up completely, many are turning to online tutoring as a viable and affordable option.

Whoever has done it will have to agree that raising bilingual children is a difficult experience. (Not that the rest of childhood is a cakewalk anyway.) Difficult yes, but enriching nonetheless.
