Présentation de l'éditeur

Whether in family life, social interactions, or business negotiations, half the people in the world speak more than one language every day. Yet many myths persist about bilingualism and bilinguals. Does being bilingual mean you are equally fluent in two languages, or that you belong to two cultures, or even that you have multiple personalities? Can you become bilingual only as a child? Why do bilinguals switch from one language to another in mid-sentence? Will raising bilingual children confuse and delay their learning of any language?
In a lively and often entertaining book, an international authority on bilingualism, son of an English mother and a French father, explores the many facets of bilingualism. In this book, François Grosjean draws on research, interviews, autobiographies, and the engaging examples of bilingual authors. He describes the various strategies—some useful, some not—used by parents raising bilingual children, explains how children easily pick up and forget languages, and considers how bilingualism affects the experience and expression of emotions, thoughts, and dreams.
This book shows that speaking two or more languages is not a sign of intelligence, evasiveness, cultural alienation, or political disloyalty. For millions of people, it’s simply a way of navigating the complexities of life.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Finally - my brain explained 3 juin 2010
Par Maddalena - Publié sur
I am bilingual, I learned my second language as an adult. I've had lots of burning questions about my
ability to speak my first and my second language. Mr Grosjean explains it all in a book that I did not want to put down.
Reading the cover of the book I was concerned that it would be too technical, he has written a lot of technical studies. But I was happily mistaken. The book is full of anecdotes and wisdom about being bilingual and raising bilingual children as well.
Having read this book I feel better about myself and my abilities, and I feel like I found my "tribe" - other people who speak two or more languages.

here are some gems from his book:

True: it is easier to swear in your second language

False: Children raised learning more than one language get confused and don't do as well in school.

The book is full of stuff like this. I recommend it to anyone who has ever studied a second language.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Excellent book on bilingualism 9 juin 2012

I'd recommend this book for teachers and others who want to know more about bilingualism. This is not a book discussing the politics of bilingualism. This is a book that looks at what it really means to be bilingual and how bilinguals and their brains actually function.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Raising bilingual kids? Start with this book. 16 décembre 2013

Are you raising children with two or more languages? Were you raised in a bilingual environment? Are you a second language learner who is wondering what "bilingual" really means and if you will ever get there? François Grosjean's excellent book debunks many of the myths of bilingualism and gives useful and practical suggestions for multilingual families.

Grosjean's writing style is clear and engaging. The subject matter is well-organized and logical. He shares personal stories which draw in the reader while referring to current research in the field. Bilingual readers will recognize and relate to his description of real life with two or more languages. For parents trying to raise children with more than one language, this book will give them a useful guide to overcoming some of the challenges and the maximizing the blessings of the bilingual path.

I have given this book as a gift to bilingual friends, recommended it enthusiastically to participants in my family language learning workshops and even persuaded my local librarian to order a copy for our town library.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 I return to this book over and over 9 mars 2014

I purchased this book as a Spring Break read years ago. As a Spanish teacher, and mother hoping to raise a child bilingually, I return to this book over and over to refresh my spirit and remind myself how amazing our brains are, and how different a bilingual brain is from a monolingual brain!

It is comforting to know that learning two languages at the same time from birth does not equal late acquisition. There are so many misinformed people out there, namely monolinguals!
