Reply To: American mom of 2 year old in Tokyo

Hi Jessi! Thanks for joining and letting us know a bit about you.

15 years in Tokyo! You must have a wealth of knowledge about the city. And it’s definitely a great place to live when considering your interests.

We can’t watch Japanese TV at our new place so I’m starting to miss it, especially since it’s good Japanese listening practice. (Don’t get much of that anymore since I’m no longer working in an office.)

I really look forward to seeing your insights into topics on this forum about bilingualism! It really is wonderful to see kids switch from one language to another. My daughter’s sentences are a mix of Japanese and English lately and I love it.
