-Corinne McKay, translator, trainer and author of How to Succeed as a Freelance Translator
"I urge you to read the book Maintaining Your Second Language by Eve Lindemuth Bodeux. Eve, a professional translator and parent to two bilingual children, has done the language-learning world a tremendous service by compiling a treasure trove of practical tips and tools for sustaining and strengthening one's second (or additional) language."
-Adam Beck, bilingualism expert (bilingualmonkeys.com) and author of Maximize Your Child's Bilingual Ability
"Maintaining Your Second Language is an essential toolkit for anyone who wishes to keep language proficiency levels honed. While a translator by trade, Bodeux's book appeals to anyone hoping to find creative ways to immerse oneself deeper into the pursuit of second, third (or beyond!) language study. The text contains both tried and true methods to maintain language proficiency, as well as some surprising and unique hints, especially in the area of accessing video and film from abroad. Bodeux's work fills a much needed niche to teach language learners tricks of the trade that can take years to discover. It's a treasure trove of resources at the fingertips that will garner praise from both the language professional and the serious enthusiast who wishes to delve deeper. I recommend it highly to graduating seniors as they exit my language program."
-Elizabeth Dick, PhD and Chair, World Languages and German Teacher
South Anchorage High School, Anchorage School District
"A must-read for bilinguals, translators, interpreters, expats, and language-lovers all over the world. In this tip-filled book, you get a great big list of resources on how to keep up with your non-native languages with the help of (mostly free) strategies and techniques. If you are looking for a practical, brain-friendly approach to keeping up your language skills, search no more: you've found the perfect reference guide, packed with information and examples no matter what your languages are or where you live. After reading this book, I (sadly) won't be able to use the excuse 'I'm not a native English speaker' anymore, because I now have all the tools to become one!"
-Catherine Christaki, translator, blogger and social media expert
