Is this book also suitable for parents of multilingual children?
Yes! The typical phenomena in the language development of bilingual children also occur in multilingual children. Certain aspects will be slightly different, e.g., the challenges faced by parents of multilingual children may be different (because the more languages in the child’s environment, the greater the room for maneuver when it comes to the order in which these languages are introduced and how they are used in the family and outside home). These aspects are thoroughly discussed in the e-book, in the chapter containing answers to the questions that concern multilingual development and upbringing.
I would like to buy an e-book, but the price is a bit too high for me. Is there any chance for a discount?
I understand that the price of my e-book may seem high to some people. Remember, however, that when you buy an e-book at a discounted price (the special offer is valid until 31 July), you pay only 30% of the price of my individual consultations. After the end of the promotion, the price of the e-book will still be only 40% of the price of the consultations. I would not be able to include as much useful advice and expert knowledge in any individual consultation or webinar as I did in my e-book. This means that the price of the e-book is very low compared to what you get in it.
Is there any payment option other than PayPal?
Yes, after proceeding to payment, both the card and PayPal payment options should appear. If you don’t see the card payment option on your phone, please try to make a purchase on your computer – it solves the problem in 95% of cases.
If you have any problems with the payment, please let me know via email@example.com – I will be happy to help you.
Where can I change the currency when paying?
You can pay in any currency and you don’t have to change anything yourself when paying. When you make a purchase on my website, the in-store payment system automatically converts the default currency into other currencies, without charging any additional fee.
Can you give me some sample questions, the answers to which I will find in the book?
Let me remind you that the book consists of 50 questions and extensive answers to these questions. Here are some examples of the questions that you can find in the book:
• Do bilingual children really start speaking later than monolingual ones?
• Why do some children learn a language faster than others?
• How to choose a bilingual upbringing strategy for our family?
• Can one person speak to the child in more than one language?
• When to start introducing another language if the child already speaks two or three of them?
• Can a child learn a language from different types of media?
• Is it okay to mix languages at home when talking to our child?
• If I haven’t spoken to my child in my language from the beginning, does it make sense to start now?
• Does one person in the child’s environment have a chance to teach the child the language?
• What phenomena occurring at the early stages of a bilingual development should worry us?
Will I find any tips in the book on how to overcome my child's reluctance to speak my language?
Yes – there’s a whole chapter dedicated to this: “Looking for common ground. How do you overcome your child’s aversion to speaking your language and motivate them to do it?” – it will help parents find the reasons why their child is reluctant to speak in the parent’s language and suggest ideas on how to overcome this reluctance (mainly based on my several years of work with multilingual families).
