7 Steps to Raising a Bilingual Child

Tufts University assisstant professor Naomi Steiner author of 7 Steps to Raising a Bilingual Child, states that "20 percent of families in the United States speak a language other than English at home, and demographic projections estimate this number will rise to 50 percent by 2030."

Language and Career

The Chicago Tribune reported this week that, knowing a foreign language will set you apart in today's job market. William Aruda, co-author of "Career Distinction", says "Knowing a foreign language shows that you are curious about other cultures or that you have a connection to another culture. When your credentials are identical to other candidates, having foreign language skills can help sway the hiring manager in your direction."

We can expect that in the future global economy, it will become even more important to know languages. A good reason to start now!

Chocolate!

Did you know that chocolate dates back to the ancient Aztecs in Mexico? They used the cacao beans for currency, in ritual ceremonies and for a special hot drink. Reading about all this chocolate made me really hungry. I came across some interesting info on raw chocolate, which is much closer to the original Mexican chocolate, than anything you can buy. It is much healthier - lower fat, sugar and full of anti-oxidants... you can actually feel good about it. Here is a link to the recipe book, that i have been using to satisfy my chocolate cravings and eat it closer to the Mexican chocolate of days gone by . Click Here!

Speaking French in Tel Aviv

I just returned from two glorious weeks in Israel. I was sitting in the Sheraton hotel lobby in Tel Aviv, when a woman sat down next to me. My Hebrew is not good enough to converse and she did not speak English. She said to me "Parlez-vous Francais"? She was visiting from Paris. Later in the day, I met two people in the pool - also from France. How nice to use my French in Israel!
