My name is Lina Dickson. I am a mother of three, the author of a blog: Best 4 Future blog, Bringing up Baby Bilingual (www.best4future.com/blog), the founder of Best 4 Future Bilingual Bookstore (www.best4future.com), and the Chinese translator of several published children’s books. I am so honored to host the 2012 August Blogging Carnival on Bilingualism!
As a former filmmaker, language teacher, mother and a native Chinese speaker, I have been researching and practicing bilingual parenting and teaching for years. For the last four years, I tried to teach my daughter Chinese in a fun and non-intrusive way by telling her stories, singing songs/rhymes, playing games and doing hands-on craft activities. While building her vocabulary in Chinese I encouraged her to actively engage in speaking Chinese with me.
I am so excited to host the 2012 August Blogging Carnival on Bilingualism. Please send all blog posts or site links to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please have the subject line as 2012 August Blogging Carnival on Bilingualism Submission.
The submission deadline is Sunday, August 26. The carnival will be posted on www.best4future.com/blog on the last Thursday of August, August 30.
Thanks in advance for all your support! I am looking forward to receiving and reading your wonderful articles!!
