As the title states this is a massive game. Four discs of beautifully rendered, well thought-out enjoyment. Prepare to leave your social life behind you.

Bilingualism by Katalin McNamara
Bilingualism by Katalin McNamara
A great little book on bilingualism, which is becoming a much more important subject in our multi-cultural world. The author using both simple language for those new to the subject and more complex language for those involved in this area of study does a wonderful job of explaining bilingualism in her family situation.

The book contains very funny tapescripts of the children using both languages at the same time (English and Hungarian), yet at the same time is informative and a good read.

A must for all people looking for a basic introduction to Bilingualism.
