Most multi-cultural couples seem to have their own unique take on the language they speak between them.

Many end up speaking a mixture of languages depending on how they feel at the time. Some start sentences in one language and finish in another, other couples stick mainly to one language but throw in the odd word of another. Some couples even use three languages to communicate!

This topic was the inspiration for a group blogging project started by Fned – a Mexican / American married to a French / Romanian husband – on her blog Fned’s blog.

In ‘bilingualism in expat couples’ a group of multicultural couples write about their experiences and experiments with different languages. Read Fned’s story and find links to the rest of the posts here.
