Multilingual Living

The latest issue of Multilingual Living has just been released and it' s a bomb!
Corey Heller and Alice Lapuerta are doing a fantastic job at gathering extremely valuable content from experts and volunteers from around the world and packaging it in a sleak, useful and stimulating manner; I salute their efforts on a purely volunteer basis and overcoming among other obstacles that of a few time zones, as they operate respectively from Seatle, USA and Austria!
I contributed an article on the way multilingualism is being cherished in Milo's kindergarden.
Check it out at the BBFN site!

Back issues (again)...

I have been dealing with a hernia in my lower back for the last two years, alternating bearable periods with unbearabl ones. This summer I reached the last drop of unbearableness, and upon our return to Paris from the holidays I have been finally operated. The operation per se is rather common and not particularly complicated...the immediate afterwards I do not wish to my worse enemy...and then I had to simply lay in bed and rest as much as possible, not an unwelcomed recommendation, but one that has once again deprived me from my blogging activities, not to mention complicated unnecessarily our daily life and organization; the good news is that I am doing much better, the pain is gone and I hope to resume to a normal life very soon. With lots of insights on my blooming MTKs!
