Afterall, languages are meant to be used (not just conjugated), so you and your family can do more good in the world, connect with other cultures as you travel, and expand your work and educational opportunities.

Which language would you LOVE to talk in with your family?

Trouble choosing? Are you like…

There are three things I want you to ask yourself.

1

Pretend a beautiful, magical fairy was like, “Poof! **glitter flies everyhwere** You can speak [whatever language],” and OMG your whole family is speaking in that langauge! How would your life instantly change? Which language would help you the most right now? Would it change your job or spouse’s job? Could you connect more with your community?

2

Which language would change you and your child’s future educational, work, and service opportunities? If you could actually talk in a language, which language would open up opportunities that align with your long term goals?

3

Is there a language that you HAVE ALWAYS wanted to learn? Is there a langauge that is near and dear to your heart? Sometimes the heart wants what the heart wants. And your passion to learn a language will outway the logic of it.

It’s important that your family picks a language that you want to do. It takes work and commitment on your part. Whatever language you choose, opportunities you didn’t realize will find their way to you because you speak that language. (Also, it’s easier to learn another language after you’ve already learned one.)

If you’re having trouble choosing between two or three, scroll down and sign up for the ball challenge to try out a language.

Yes, it’s true. Families in Switzerland will speak 3 or 4 languages because there are 4 national languages. Nothing is stopping you from learning more than one–except your overwhelm level.

Our rule is that you never overwhelm mom. Whatever language you choose, you’ll be using it as a family. If you choose more than one, you need to break up your day or switch off days focusing on each language. If this sounds overwhelming, start with one and then add on another later when it doesn’t feel so overwhelming.

You can also have one child in charge of making sure one language is spoken at an agreed upon time and another child making sure the other is being spoken.

Hello! I’m Adelaide, the founder of TalkBox.Mom.

Something that’s very special about our family is

When we arrive in a new country we can start talking in that language the same day we get there.

After about 2 weeks, we’re talking and understanding the locals. And they’re understanding us.

Within a couple of months, they think we’ve been living there for over a year.

This is what I poured into TalkBox.Mom.

I work with native speakers all over the world to create the best and most loved language program for families.

When I’m not traveling with my family and homeschooling my boys, I’m at our TalkBox.Mom Headquarters in Dallas or speaking at conferenes all over the world.

FROM OUR BLOG

German Phrase of the Day! It’s time to take your medicine.

When my kids are sick, I am glued to the clock, making sure I give medicine at the right time. And because sometimes it tastes so good or he hurts so much, Darian asks for it again and again until I can finally tell him, “It’s time it’s to take your medicine.” But for Nolan… he rather die than take medicine. I’ve lied him down with my legs on his arms and his head between my legs to force him to take medicine, and he will volcano it back up. Maybe he is meant to be a spy that saves his own life by refusing poison, but there is no way to get that boy to take medicine. It’s a battle! How are your kids about taking medicine when they need it?

Chinese Mandarin Phrase of the Day! My stomach hurts.

All right. Let’s hear ’em! Tell me your worst throw up story. I know you have them! We all do. Somehow our moms forget to tell us about all the throw-up that happens when you have kids. It’s like they block that part out! And I can see why!

When Darian was little, he had a bad flu and kept throwing up. We were trying to get him to make it to the toilet or trash can to throw up… but he threw up in the hall… or near the toilet on the ground… or to the right of the trash can. By the middle of the night, I was SO tired. Like physically tired from the lack of sleep and tired of cleaning up throw up again and again. Finally he was fine, and I laid down to sleep until I was suddenly awoken by him telling me that he was going to throw up 😦 and I literally sat up and cupped my hands, catching it as it went down my arms 😭 because I didn’t want to scrub the carpet again.

And then Nolan threw up and was sick too. 😭

French Phrase of the Day! I think I am getting sick

Do you want to see me totally struggle with a new phrase in a foreign language I don’t know?! Then watch today’s Phrase of the Day video. Hahaha! French is a super different language for me. Our family speaks in German and Spanish to each other every single day. Definitely not French! But I would like too!

You may think that owning a language company means I am some linguist genius, but that is not that case! I am just a normal mom like you, who wanted to make learning a second language fun and actually happen for my kids! We all start out in the kind of overwhelmed phase of “How am I ever going to sound like a native?!” Just take it one day at a time, one phrases at a time, one word at a time! And you’ll totally see a difference overtime—especially if you’re having fun and not stressing!
