Great news!

I’m excited to announce that Bilingual By Choice: Raising Kids in Two (or more) Languages has been selected as a finalist for the Book of The Year award (in the parenting category) by ForeWord magazine, with the winners (top 3) to be announced at BookExpo America in New York City on May 26th.

    I very much enjoyed Bilingual by Choice. I am expecting my first baby and I cannot wait to meet him! I am German, my husband is from the United States. We currently live in the US. We speak both English and German (but his German is a little rusty and I speak English with an accent). We want our child to know both languages but are unsure how to address the situation in the home. I will speak German, he will speak English. But what should we do when we speak in front of our baby? Should I speak German to my husband and my husband answers in English or would that be too confusing? I would appreciate if somebody could help me with that question. Thanks!
