"This series of excellent essays speaks to the heart of a language school in Geneva, the crossroads of so many cultures and languages. An excellent balance of sound scientific knowledge and practical personal experience."-Pamela Walsh OBE Director General & Founder of ASC International House Language School

"The Multilingual Mind is an important resource for anyone interested in the latest thinking on the topic. Warm and welcoming, it offers guidance and insight to parents, teachers, and multilingual adults alike, as well as to monolinguals who may choose to engage this adventure we call multilingualism."-Barbara F. Schaetti, Ph.D. President, Transition Dynamics

"I am absolutely delighted in anticipating that there will be a book that I can place in the hands of parents and educators that responds clearly to the challenge of multilingualism in its various contexts. Tracey has done all of us a great service in pulling these authors with personal experience and academic credentials together to speak with clarity to the issues of the multilingual mind."-David Pollock Executive Director, Interaction International Inc.

"The Multilingual Mind offers a realistic and very pragmatic approach to multilingualism. This book is a wonderful tool for both parents and teachers and affirms what research and experience tell us about people's ability to learn languages. This work should become part of the educational mainstream, as learning languages opens us to becoming more culturally sensitive, a skill that is essential in today's globalized world."-Pilar Cabeza de Vaca Head, The American School in Paris
