For as long as I can remember, I've been a 'perfectionist'. It would drive me nuts to see a word spelled wrong, someone wearing mismatched socks or the toilet paper roll hung in the wrong direction (that one drives you nuts too, doesn't it?) I never really understood why exactly it drove me nuts but it did. Like finger nails on a chalkboard.
My expectations for myself were so much higher than my expectations for anyone else and to be completely honest, they were downright unrealistic. My fear of making a mistake or not doing it 'the right way' was numbing. I would avoid restaurants because I'd never been there before and I didn't know what to expect. If I wasn't sure how something would turn out, I'd end up either procrastinating to the extreme or I'd avoid the situation all together. I still struggle with this sometimes (as you can tell by the fact that I'm writing this post 2 hours before it'll go live).
And now....on to community building!
It doesn't get much better than that, now does it?!
Just click HERE to get started with it today!!!
I’m here today to talk about community building!...community building for families with children who speak more than one language!
Have you ever wondered if it was too late for your child to learn a new language easily? I know I have! I see so many parents on social media asking too. You're definitely not alone!
Are you ready for the good news? There's some exciting new research that answers this question and the answer is probably not what you're expecting.
Before I get to that though, let me tell you my story...
Hello! Hola! Bonjour! 你好！
I’m so excited that you’re here! This is my first blog post but definitely not my first experience teaching others about language acquisition. (Did you notice that I didn't say 'language learning'? More on that another day!) I'm passionate about helping you teach and acquire languages better.
Hey! I'm Bridgette!
