Bio, Christina Bosemark

Christina is the founder and director of the Multilingual Children’s Association, the practical go-to resource for raising bilingual children. It offers expert advice and real world wisdom with articles, parent discussions, resource directory and tips for raising kids with multiple languages.

She is also co-founder and board member of a full time immersion school, The Scandinavian School in San Francisco, and a member of the American Council on Immersion Education. Christina advises multilingual families and writes the Bilingual Beginnings column for several leading parenting publications and is the in-house expert on Multicultural Families for ClubMom.

After growing up monolingual in Sweden, Christina had to go through the grueling effort to learn English, Dutch and German in school and as an adult (and understands just enough Italian and French to be dangerous). However, the effort paid off and she has lived and worked around the world and traveled the globe extensively.

Christina has career experience as a senior marketing professional in Silicon Valley’s high-tech industry and prior to that in telecommunications. She holds an Economics degree from the University of Växjö, Sweden.

Now she has settled down in San Francisco with her husband and two trilingual daughters, but she still gets some air under her wings sometimes to enjoy her favorite hobbies — flying airplanes, scuba diving and skiing.
