postheadericon "Bilingual Monkeys": Ideas & Inspiration For Raising Bilingual Children

Hiroshima-based blogger Adam Beck has recently launched an exciting new blog called Bilingual Monkeys to help mixed-heritage families raise their children in a bilingual context.

Who is Bilingual Monkeys for?

Although Bilingual Monkeys is based on Adam's experience in an English/Japanese household living in Japan, the blog is aimed at "any parent anywhere aiming to boost the language ability of a bilingual child."

That includes:
  • English-speaking parents living in non-English-speaking countries.
  • Parents of other languages nurturing the English ability of their kids.
  • Parents promoting second languages other than English.

What is ANT-Hiroshima?

Asian Network of Trust-Hiroshima, an NGO based in Hiroshima, Japan, draws its inspiration from the experience of the A-bomb survivors who, together with international support, worked to rebuild their shattered city in a spirit of peace and reconciliation. In a similar spirit, ANT-Hiroshima is involved in a range of relief, reconstruction, and peace-building projects in a number of countries, including Afghanistan, Pakistan, Nepal, and Bangladesh.

ANT-Hiroshima’s work is rooted in the twin missions of providing material, as well as emotional, support to the people we serve. We bring a human touch to the provision of emergency relief in areas devastated by natural disaster or human conflict. Operating on a small scale at the local level, we share a spirit of warmth and compassion along with such immediate material needs as food, clothing, water, shelter, and medical supplies and services.

In Japan, too, our work is inspired by the spirit of Hiroshima in our efforts to motivate the next generation of Japanese to view the world with compassionate eyes. Through programs in education, we strive to stimulate the awareness and action of young people towards both the material and emotional needs of their local communities as well as the international community.
