Product Overview

More and more people - hundreds of millions around the world - are living in bilingual homes. In the U.S. alone, more than 54 million people over the age of five speak a language other than English at home. Yet once children enter school, the pull towards one language becomes stronger and maintaining the bilingual advantage requires a serious family commitment - abilingual choice.

The good news is it's worth it. Research shows that bilingual children are known to have more social, cultural and economic opportunities as they grow to adulthood and that learning a second language from birth can even result in protection against Alzheimer's later in life. Bilingual by Choice provides families with specific activities, games and insights that will show them how to not only teach their kids more than one language but also to help their kids retain and develop those language skills.

For parents, educators, immigrants and expatriates, Bilingual by Choice deals directly with the obstacles to sustaining a second language, including unsupportive relatives, issues at school, frequent relocations and discrimination, countering each one with the author's firsthand experience at both sides of the growing-up-bilingual journey, as a child and as a parent. Commit to the choice, and help your children become bilingual - for life.
