Author name: Maria Babin

Bonjour! I'm Maria! I was born in Southern California to a Peruvian father and a Mexican mother. I grew up speaking Spanish and English and fell in love with French when I was just a girl. I studied French and second language acquisition at Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah where I met my French husband Samuel. I taught French at BYU for a few years before venturing onto our own homemade multilingual experiment... My husband and I now live in Normandy, France with our four gorgeous trilingual children. I'm a substitute secondary school English teacher and am currently preparing my certification to become a tenured teacher in French private schools. I am passionate about second language acquisition and my blog is the story of our multilingual, multicultural life. You'll also find different resources and advice for raising your own multilingual family on Trilingual Mama. Come have a peek, I'd love to have you visit!
