¡Hola, amig@s!

I’m super excited to share with you all my first VLOGGING experience: I’ve had the opportunity to participate in the 2015 Vlogging Telephone Chain with other fabulous multilingual/multicultural bloggers through Multicultural Kid Blogs.

Today, I’ll be answering a question from Michelle at Mothertongues. Her questions for me are, “Have you ever wanted to give up on multilingualism? If so, how did you get past that?”
