About the author
Top reviews from other countries
The first half of the book is about adjusting your mindset and attitudes towards the task, which is necessary but probably one touch too lengthy and repetitive. The second half is where the author offers solid ideas and advice - the part that really earned the stars for the book in my case. The author is very hard on the idea of training your kids from birth as that was what he did, which was distressing for me as i have already missed the crucial first years but still hoping that I would find some answers from this book. I did find them, through personal emails to the author, and if I look past what was said about teaching from birth, I can say most of his ideas are actually all applicable for bilingual teaching from later years too.
Adam was amazingly helpful and encouraging at a personal level. He replied to all my emails extremely promptly and I can't say all author can be that easily accessible or available. He makes a reader feel very welcome and included and probably will be one of those pioneers that you'd want to hold on to during the lonely years of bilingual battles.
There are some repetitions through the book; however, I believe these are important to make sure the reader understands and absorbs key steps of the journey. This book will give anyone the motivation and useful guidance for raising a bilingual child. Recommended!
