Galesburg, IL (PressExposure) June 21, 2013 -- Livingbilingual is a newly-minted bilingual education site with an emphasis on fathers and the fathers role in raising bilingual children. It also touches on cultural issues; differences, similarities, and unique peculiarities among various cultures.
The website hopes to fill a void created by the lack of male voices in the bilingual education arena. Bilingual education begins at home and needs the input of both parents, not just the mother. Fathers are more and more out of touch as work hours increase as well as responsibilities, but LivingBilingual feels we need to take more time out of our days to encourage the language development of our children; especially when trying to foster a bilingual child's language acquisition.
The author writes on a few regular topics such as bilingual countries and famous bilinguals with the hope to highlight and promote the bilingual lifestyle and encourage parents and educators to foster bilingualism in the classroom and at home. The information is updated regularly and sourced from the highest authority scholarly articles as well as from the authors' own personal experience.
The bilingual education community online is strong, and Jeffrey Nelson hopes to add to that with his unique perspectives of being a non-native speaking father to a bilingual child being raised in the minority language in the United States.
"Passing down a language to your child is of paramount importance" says Jeffrey Nelson, owner and author at LivingBilingual. "It's key to helping them understand and see the world through the prism of the culture and language of their ancestors. The importance cannot be overstated."
While only one month old, LivingBilingual has already accomplished a great deal. They have seen a steady flow of increasing numbers of traffic and great interaction with other blogs in the industry. Jeffrey Nelson has guest posted on a few of the industry-leading blogs and will continue to be a regular contributor.
