Olena’s podcasts are truly intriguing for those who are interested in bilingual parenting and language education. She interviews well-known social media personalities and down-to-earth parents who offer insight into the journey of raising multilingual kids. Whether you’re wondering about different approaches for raising little bilinguals, how to move past family language difficulties, or which ideas have been successful for others, you will enjoy these episodes.
My favorite past episodes include (in any order):
• 001: Olena and her husband discuss their language journey and raising their children multilingual (Russian/Ukrainian/English)
• 005: Adam Beck, blogger at Bilingual Monkeys (Japanese/English-speaking children)
• 011: Maria Babin, blogger at Trilingual Mama (French/English/Spanish-speaking children)
• 007: Cordelia Newlin de Rojas, blogger at Multilingual Mama (French/English/Spanish/Thai speaking children)
Disclaimer: Olena plans to interview me for a future podcast episode (I blog at intentionalmama.com & raise my children in French/English), but I was a fan long before she asked me to participate. BKR is clear, professional, informative, & humorous.
