Methods. Tricks. Recommended vocabulary. Which words and in which order and at what age? Which concepts (colors, shapes, etc.) come before which? What works best? What doesn't work? Got any links to great resources? Also things related to raising kids in bilingual homes, but not only.
I'm looking for real science here, not just what worked for you and your kid. Every approach works eventually and to a degree, but I want to know the best approaches. I'd like to hear from professionals in the field if you're out there.
