”The key is to make bilingualism a priority, but not a source of stress,” says Annika who knows firsthand the challenges that multilingual families face in everyday life. ”My aim with this book is to provide useful advice and resources for families across a range of different multilingual situations: mixed-language marriages, expats, international adoption, single-parent, and trilingual families, and parents who speak a non-native language with their children.”
