HELSINKI, FINLAND, December 15, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Children may be like sponges when it comes to language learning, but the key to having them develop into active bilinguals in all their languages is to make it fun and useful in daily life. Struggling at first to raise her daughters bilingually, Annika Bourgogne, MA and language teacher, decided to write the book that she herself would have liked to read when embarking on her family's bilingual journey.

"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."
