New Changes on Multilingual Mania!

We’re excited to announce that we have a few changes going on around here!

This blog was initially created as a creative outlet for a bilingual educator who sometimes just needed a place to vent about some of the struggles that she experienced in the field of bilingual education. Initially the blog wasn’t consistently updated because it was a bit hard to fight the fight all day long for quality bilingual education and then come home to blog about it.

Since then the original author has decided that there are many people who also have a great story to tell, and has decided to move in another direction! She has teamed up with one of her most trusted colleagues to continue to collaborate on Multilingual Mania and other web projects. We’re also considering bringing in a few more of our colleagues into the mix, so this means that Multilingual Mania will provide a more comprehensive and diverse perspective about bilingualism and multilingualism.

We’ve come to the conclusion that sometimes we are sick of hearing ourselves talk about bilingual education all day long, so we want to hear a variety of other perspectives in addition to our own! You might have noticed that over the past couple of months we have a few additional contributors who have been welcomed as writers on Multilingual Mania. You will be hearing more from these writers (and others) as time goes by!!

One final big change that we will be making soon is that we are planning to also include writers who write predominately in other languages. Because we are based in Southern California, we will first start with writers who write in the Spanish language. Some of the writing will be translated, while some may not. We’re still working out the details as to whether or not languages other than Spanish will also be included.

If you are also interested at any time in contributing writing to Multilingual Mania, please do not hesitate to contact us at multilingualmania(at)yahoo(dot)com and we will get back to you as soon as possible! Interested writers must (obviously) hold the perspective that multilingualism is an asset, of course!
