Carnival deadline: June 29

I'm hosting the next Blogging Carnival on Bilingualism here at Bringing up Baby Bilingual on July 1, 2010. If you would like to participate, here's all you need to do:

1. Choose one of your recent posts about bilingualism, multilingualism, multiculturalism, language learning, language teaching, or raising children with more than one language.

2. Or write a new post inspired by the above topics!

3. Email me the exact URL of the post, plus the URL of your blog itself.

4. And if I haven't "met" you before in cyberspace (or real life)--or even if I have!--I'd appreciate a little background information, such as a one-sentence description of your blog or a blurb about your family or your favorite quote about language learning...just to help me figure out how to introduce you when I write a post synthesizing everyone's submissions.

5. Deadline: please submit by Tuesday, June 29 via email to babybilingual (at) gmail (d0t) com.

Questions? Just let me know! For more info on the Blogging Carnival on Bilingualism, visit Bilingual For Fun (the founder) or email me. I'm so looking forward to hearing about your ideas and experiences! Thank you to all the bloggers who have already offered to share their posts.


  1. For some reason I can't reply to your comment on my own blog so I am posting it here! Sorry!

    I'm sorry! I was very unclear there. She was talking about children learning to write in their native language - they believe that it's too much to require children to express their thoughts or creativity while also learning the mechanics of language. I am the one who made the connection to the communicative method. As far as I can tell, they don't really have a perspective on language learning. In the latest edition, they recommend Rosetta Stone or Power-Glide for modern languages and move on. I do think that some of their ideas and methods for L1 learning could be beneficial for L2 learning as well, and I hope to blog about that soon. Sorry for confusing you!

  2. Ah! Okay. I'm glad that these educational gurus don't have unreasonable expectations about second language learning. I'll look forward to seeing your post about making the connections between L1 and L2 home schooling. Thanks for your comment over here!
