Wolf at the door?

I know I’m not the only parent in families with several languages to obsess over how much exposure our progeny get to each language. When I read other blogs or forums there’s often a sense of the struggle for survival. Parents racing to stay ahead of the majority language, an unstoppable wave. If we hesitate for but a moment, we’ll see the minority language(s) engulfed by it.
Just to update on our situation, Beirut Baby is nearly three, and Paris Baby is now ten months. I speak English to the kids, my husband speaks French (one of his three family languages) to them and together we two speak English and French. We have been living in Spain for a few months. We spend a lot of time with English friends and there aren’t many French living in the area.

Lebanese Don’t Like To Admit Defeat, Even In The World Cup

I’ve been asked by at least 5 people today about the stupid rumor circulating that Brazilian players got paid to lose the game to Germany. Apparently there’s an article in Arabic claiming that its source is AFP and that Brazilians lost the game on purpose. Needless to say, the story is fake and no one mentioned it except few lousy blogs and websites and it’s the stupidest thing I’ve ever heard. Why the hell would the Brazilian team, who’s playing on home soil, want to get humiliated by the Germany team 7 to 1?
