It is summertime in Australia at the moment. Quite a contrast to the polar vortex and the snow days being experienced by my colleagues in the US. It has been a good time to write book chapters and journal articles since many locals are still on holidays. Today Linda Harrison and I spent the day writing a paper we have currently titled "Multilingualism and speech-language competence in early childhood: Impact on academic and social-emotional outcomes at school". We rewarded ourselves with a swim in the middle of the day's writing. We hope that this paper will be ready to submit soon - we have been working on it for a few years.
