What is a blended family? 
It is a new term, generally used to describe families that come from remarriage and have children and parents who are not related by blood. 
Like any family, blended family life comes together under a number of circumstances, and for the children or the new parents, don't always match expectations. 
Now, take all of those complications, and add a multi-linguistic household. 
This has happened in my family several times. 
Where many see difficulty, misunderstanding, and tension, I see an opportunity to learn and grow. 
My little brother and I do not speak the same language, and struggle to communicate. My wife, daughter, and I (sometimes our dog too) have to speak to each other between three different languages some days.
It's not easy. 
But the love I have for them motivates me to learn more about their native language. 
And I am touched, tickled, and glad when I hear them start to use English with me. 
So, whatever your language struggle might be, don't see it as a burden. Like being a new family, language can be a hard thing to get used to, but you grow to love it.

Hi! My names is Jon! I have been teaching English for the last five and a half years , and have loved every minute of it. I started as an Assistant Language Teacher in public elementary, jr.high and high schools in Tokunoshima, Japan, teaching English to everyone from kindergartners to retirees. Returning to the United States, I taught English in private and public schools, as well as online. Now I teach English at university to native and nonnative speakers. My method is quite simple: start at whatever level a student is with their English language ability, find out what interests them, and work from there. Slowly but surely, over guided study and practice, bring my student to new heights.
