Welcome! My name is Jessica Blin and I am French, Canadian and Australian. I am a bilingual teacher and mother of two boys. We have chosen to raise our children bilingually. I speak French to them and my husband speaks English and we live in Sydney.
After teaching foreign languages in various countries, I had the opportunity in 2007, to start a French/English bilingual program at the French International School of Tokyo. This was an amazing experience. It made me realise how something that seemed so natural to me –being bilingual- raised many questions amongst parents and teachers. Since then I haven’t stopped educating myself on what it means to be/become bilingual.
I began this website in 2013 to share what I have learned over the years as a bilingual teacher, mother and researcher in bilingual education. I hope that this website will help you gain more information and guide you through your bilingual journey.
