This book is hugely enjoyable! It is written in a highly accessible style, and yet it is academically rigorous. The author has a profound understanding of the linguistic, social, cultural and psychological aspects of trilingualism and uses her large corpus covering more than 10 years of trilingual interactions in a family setting as an illustration of successful trilingual development. The book reads like a novel: the characters are two determined parents, one Chinese and one Swiss, and two biracial and trilingual boys growing up in New York, proud of their unique identity. The author presents different perspectives: the parents' view, the children's opinions about their multilingualism, and the researcher's perspective. She draws excellent conclusions for prospective parents of multilingual children and has a clear message to those who doubt that multilingualism can work: it is possible, her children developed superior cognitive and communicative skills, but it involves a constant, unrelenting effort from the parents' part.Dr. Jean-Marc Dewaele, Department of Applied Linguistics, Birkbeck, University of LondonPacked with research, advice and personal accounts of trilingualism, this book will quickly become every multilingual family's treasure trove. Written specifically with the multilingual parent in mind, it is easy to read, full of real-world experiences, and replete with researched facts and wisdom: an essential read for any family raising children in more than two languages.Corey Heller, Editor-in-Chief, Multilingual Living MagazineWang has written a highly readable and entertaining real family story but it is much more than that. It is an encouraging and supportive book for parents not only through the real family story but also through its description of how to plan, steps to take, developmental information, description of successes and difficulties, related to language, culture and development. It is worthwhile for educators as well; a scholarly well referenced work in the genre of Gnyx T Wrk. Carol Keyes, Ph. D. Professor, Parent, Early Childhood Educator/Consultant, New YorkThis wise and engaging book is rich with detail on how normal multilingual acquisition works, where the challenges lie, and why raising children in multiple languages is worthwhile. I want to hand this book to my kids: "See? This is what we've been trying to accomplish."Sharon Flank, Ph.D., Linguist and mother of two bilingual daughters (English/Russian), Washington, D.C.This book sends an encouraging message to immigrant, inter-cultural, and inter-racial parents: Raising children with heritage languages and cultures is an important element in childrearing.Carmen S. Rodriguez, Multilingual advocate, ArizonaThis a must-read book for any parents who wish to raise children with more than one language. The useful strategies provided by the author help parents raise happy children while passing their heritage languages and cultures. Ping Huang, father of a trilingual child (Chinese/English/Spanish), ShanghaiThe book, part of the Parents' and Teachers' Guides series published by Multilingual Matters, is written in a highly reader-friendly, non-technical and comprehensive style making it accessible to readers from all walks of life. It draws on the unfolding, entertaining story of an actual family, yet it is academically rigorous with details of evidence and data typical of research work...This book is highly worthwhile reading for parents, educators and researchers. It is useful not only for families with three or more languages but also for any bilingual or monolingual diasporas who can also benefit from understanding the role of multilingualism in children's language learning and identity development.Hongyan Yang, Department of Linguistics, Macquarie University Australian Review of Applied Linguistics, 2010, Vol 33, No 3


This book is based on an eleven-year observation of two children who were simultaneously exposed to three languages from birth. It tells the story of two parents from different cultural, linguistic, and ethnic-racial backgrounds who joined to raise their two children with their heritage languages outside their native countries. It also tells the children’s story and the way they negotiated three cultures and languages and developed a trilingual identity. It sheds light on how parental support contributed to the children’s simultaneous acquisition of three languages in an environment where the main input of the two heritage languages came respectively from the father and from the mother. It addresses the challenges and the unique language developmental characteristics of the two children during their trilingual acquisition process.

4.0 von 5 Sternen The Trilingual Tiger Mom 9. Dezember 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
This book appealed to me for two reasons. First, Xiao-lei is a mother of two trilingual boys. Second, she is a scientist with background in linguistics and psychology which can be felt throughout the book: it is a small scale, in-depth, longitudinal study of her two son’s first decade of life.

That said, if you’re looking for a foolproof guide for raising your kids in three languages this book is NOT for you. The strict and extremely systematic approach for raising their kids multilingually won't be everyone's cup of tea. However, this book brings to the forefront many issues that you might want to consider, it offers plenty of examples and strategies.

5.0 von 5 Sternen This is THE book about trilingualism 4. Oktober 2009
Von Multilingual family - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
This tells the story of one family whose two boys learned three languages simultaneously. We can find many books about bilingualism, but very few people have written a book about trilingualism. For once, it is written by a researcher and gives accessible info about what it is to raise trilingual kids. I didn't have the feeling that the author's children are super bright or well above average. I felt that the parents were well prepared and organized and this is this info that I was looking for. How, as a parent, can I raise my kids in 3 languages on a daily basis? The book answered my questions. No, she doesn't mention situations that other multilingual families have experienced: instead she went in great details about her own family and this is what I needed. Very good book , highly recommended.

This book is great. I'm very happy I bought it. We are trying to teach French and Spanish to our son while living in the US. It's been difficult and sometimes we felt like giving up and it's great to have somewhat of a guide and example to show us that it can work and get better.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Excellent aid for parents trying to pass their heritage language to their kids 3. April 2009
Von 3language - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
This is a wonderful book! I can't put it down! I have never seen anything as good before. It is full of great explanations on language learning and development in children, supplemented by the examples from the author's family. Moreover, what makes it so great is that it gives parents possible strategies to follow to teach their kids their heritage languages and making it a fun process for the kids as well. I can see it being useful not only for families with 3 languages, but for bilingual as well or families with one language but living in a foreign country. Highly recommend it!

3.0 von 5 Sternen it's more for Chinese readers 26. September 2011
Von Kseniya - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
I am Russian, but have a Chinese husband and we are living in Italy.

I find difficult to read examples in this book because author uses many of them in Chinese or in French, and some even without translation. Of course I can ask my husband, but it is not very convenient.

It is written in very easy_to_read language...and each point is explained several times. For ex, in each little chapter author repeats same personal info abt herself, her husband and children.

For me it was a little boring to read obvious things two times for each page, and try to understand some Chinese-French examples.

But in general book is good. it can give an understanding of what you should think before you decide to raise three languages speaking child.

It is ideal for Chinese who lives in USA, for other nation it will be a bit boring.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Global Family 12. September 2010
Von C. Taylor - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Finally! A book that addresses the unique experiences of raising your children as polyglots. The author presents the information in an honest and sincere manner. The author presents her research and then follows up with her parental experience. That was very helpful. She directly addresses the frustrating myths of multilingualism that we confront and the ignorance of mostly well-meaning parents and educators who do not understand some of the unique complexities of raising children who are multilingual. This is an excellent book for parents and educators who want to understand multilingual families.
