I would like to invite you all to my new online resource, Being Multilingual:
The aim of this blog is to discuss what it means to be multilingual and
what is involved in the regular use of several languages.
Multilingualism is often misunderstood, and often correlated with either
over-ability or disability. Myths and misconceptions about multilingualism
have consequences at home, in school and in clinic.

attention. My focus is the people: multilingualism is not about what
several languages can do to people, it is about what people can do with
If you ever wondered about multilingualism, whether you are monolingual or
multilingual, welcome to my blog.
