5.0 out of 5 stars Very good book, 15 Jan. 2014

This review is from: Growing Up with Three Languages: Birth to Eleven (Parents' and Teachers' Guides) (Paperback)
Yes as previous reviewers have said it is written in an academic style as a research project but it is very easy to read and is a good guide if you are trying to raise children with three languages. There are very little materials on the subject (and many people forget or don't know but raising trilingual children is very different from raising bilingual children). The author described her own family and the progress of her own children. Not all her methods are practical depending on your circusmtances and her children look quite gifted (mine were nowhere close to hers in terms of progress at the same age!) so don't give up because of that! She says herself that this book is intended as a guide, an example of certain methods that were successfull in a particular set of circumstances and it is not a "what you must do to succeed book". I am raising children with English, French and Hebrew and this book has been extremely useful. It gives ideas, helps you set realistic targets and explains the challenges at each stage. I highly recommend to any parent who are told that "anyway kids always chose one language", "they will maybe understand but they always reach an age where they refuse to speak one particular language" etc. It requires efforts and commitment from the parents and it is not an easy journey but it is possible and this book will help you. Don't listen to the ones who failed and tell you it will never work. Good luck!
