This page is intended primarily as a place for bilingual parents to
find information and resources to help them raise their children
bilingually. If you know of any information that "should" be on this
page but isn't, drop Cindy a line.

Since there are only two types of Web pages, those which have been abandoned
and those which remain under construction, I hereby declare this page to be
Why is this page so boring?
This page is lacking many of the fancy graphics that have become
typical of Web sites. There are two reasons for this. Partly, it's
because these pages were written and are being maintained on a
volunteer basis. I can only devote so much time to them, and I would
rather spend that time adding useful information than adding special
effects. And partly, it's because I want these pages to be available
to everyone, regardless of which browser they are using. Download
times from Europe to the US are also slow enough without adding
decorations. I have added a simple background, though, because some
browsers use a grey background as the default and black printing on a
grey background can be hard to read.
I welcome comments and suggestions about this Web page. Please send them
