Bilingual FamilyHow are you teaching your child two languages?

Before I had children I thought that teaching them how to speak Spanish and English would be very easy.

I just figured that since I was fully bilingual my children would be too. However, now that I actually have children, teaching them both languages is proving to be a much harder task than I ever thought it would be. In this section we’ll discuss the issues that come up when trying to teach our children to be bilingual. Check back often for new resources and to share your thoughts on this subject.

The Bilingual Family: A Handbook for ParentsThese two books provide a good overview of the complexities involved in raising bilingual children and how to address them.
