Summary

In early June 2010, Carlin Flora, a Senior Editor for the New York based, Psychology Today, wrote to me to ask me if she could interview me after having read my new book, Bilingual: Life and Reality. We emailed back and forth concerning the matter and then, a few days later, she asked me, “I wonder if you’d like your own blog on bilingualism? . …. The website gets two million visitors per month.”
