Passing a language on to your children is one of the

Greatest Gifts

you could give them!

So why does the task feel so daunting and hard at times?

 

think

Maybe you don’t know where to start


Maybe you can’t get your hands on enough resources in your target language
Or maybe you are the only one in your circle of friends raising bilingual children!

I hear you, I felt the same way too!
That’s why I created the Bilingual Avenue Members’ Club!

It broke my heart to hear how many good families, just like yours, set out with the best intentions to raise bilingual children but eventually gave up on the journey.

But that does not have to be the case for your family!

“Bilingual Avenue has helped me a lot in raising my two bilingual daughters. Marianna has given me strategies that I can implement in my bilingual home right away. It’s not easy to raise children speaking more than one language but with the help of Bilingual Avenue I feel like I can do it! I know I am not alone and I feel like I now have the resources to give my children the gift of language!”

“Marianna, thank you for your encouragement! I can’t tell you what it has meant to me to connect with others that feel as passionately about bilingualism as I do.  I used to feel so alone and restricted in my resources and abilities.  Now I am sure that I am not crazy to be doing this and that help is only a few clicks away!”

A little bit about me …

My name is Marianna Du Bosq.

I am a bilingual mother, former dual language educator and lifetime language learner!

I’m thrilled you’re here—because we are a lot alike, you and me. We are both trying to raise multilingual children.  Which means we both value all the benefits that speaking another language can offer. Yet I bet you also know how difficult the language learning journey can be!

I have two little linguist at home that keep me on my toes!  Language is just one of the many elements of motherhood that I am juggling!

When I am not creating resources for the Members’ Club or hosting the award-winning podcast, Bilingual Avenue and creating resources for the Members’ Club, you can find me scouring the local library for Spanish resources.
