I’m Maria and I was born in Southern California to a Peruvian father and a Mexican mother, raised bilingual (English/Spanish) and developed an affinity for all things French as a young girl! I studied French literature and early childhood language acquisition at Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah, then taught French 101 for a few years before marrying a handsome Frenchman and venturing onto our homemade trilingual experiment. Today I’m the happy mama of four trilingual children living near Paris, France. In this blog I’d love to reveal to you the many facets of our in-home language experiences, explore the question of what makes a multilingual family successful and hopefully inspire those who aspire to do the same in their own home. -Maria
