Welcome!

Raising a bilingual (or multilingual) child is hard! A favorite part of our Habbi Habbi journey has been meeting and hearing the stories of other parents. Their tips and tricks, motivations, backgrounds... are all so interesting - inspiring and comforting us along our own paths. We've shared them here, in hopes that they can do the same for you!   We hope you love. xo, H&AL

Speaking Spanish in Japan

Born in Chile, raised in London, and now living in Japan - Javi (@Japan.with.Chile) is a true global citizen!  She first caught out attention on Instagram, where she seamlessly integrates Spanish, English and Japanese in her posts (wow). We loved learning more about her story and her plan for raising her son to be trilingual, influenced by her own multilingual background and multicultural experiences.
