Thanks, girls. I am glad you enjoyed it. When I saw it on Pinterest I thought it was such a good idea that I had to share it with all of you. ?. I even made some hearts for my husband ?! I wanted him to feel included.February 16, 2017 at 9:50 am #13479
2016 had his ups and downs but I can say that it has been a great year. My husband got a permanent job after some years of inestability. I found the resource I was looking for so long to help me find the path to build a bilingual family: Bilingual Avenue. I completed our language plan and I could focus on it.
As a family we had the experience of having an aupair with us last summer. I learned about it and now I will not make the same mistakes.
After summer our English teacher Susana, who was with us the last two years and a half left us because she found a job at a Bilingual school (mix of emotions: I was happy for her but I felt down (she was a great support and my children main source of native input) like “otra piedra en el camino ” , but I took a deep breath, keep moving and now we have Melisa who was their first English contact at least four years ago and now she is a mother of two bilingual gourgeous girls who want to play with mine. She understands my feelings so well.
And at last, I have accepted that I am not going to be able to create a need for my children to speak in English with me and by accepting this, I am happier and lest frustrated. This doesn’t mean I am going to quit, but I don’t have to put so much pressure on me. To help them with practicing their speaking, I am planning of make them talk without realizing (theater play, reading books aloud…)
Thank you for all your support!?
I have an issue with me planning or having a so far in future vision of my children. I wasn’t even able to do it when the language plan. But I am going to try!
By the time Lidia is fifteen, she will read and write fluently and she will feel confindent speaking English.
By the time Antonio is eight, he will read in English.
Hi! I’m Conchi and I live in Alicante (Spain) with my husband and my children Lidia (9) and Antonio (6)

¡Enhorabuena María y familia! Congratulations! Disfrútalo mucho que crecen tan rápido.
Me apunto! But I will think very seriusly about my questions first! Lol. Because having just three questions: It is like if you find the genius from the aladdin’s lamp and you have only three wishes or when someone ask you: what would you take with you if you are going to live in a deserted island?
