FAQ archive of the bilingual families mailinglist

 

How does this work?

As you probably know it is possible for members of the mailing list to dig in the main archive of the list.  You can read about the traditional method for doing this by following this link, but if you find that too much like hard work you can have a look in this FAQ archive that we have made. Together with some friends in the list we have been digging in the vaults, putting subjects into categories and placing them on this page. So, how do you get information about a specific subject ?

Glance through the INDEX table.  Click on a subject and you will be whizzed down the page to it.  Now choose a thread within that subject area that interests you and follow the three steps below.

Step 1. Click on the subject (link) and you will see that an email will be created.

Step 2. There is no need to write anything, just send this email, the address should already be written in the address window.

Step 3. Within a few seconds you'll automatically receive an email from the mailing-list server containing a thread with a discussion on the subject you asked for.

It's that easy!

Note that it's only possible for members of the mailing-list to follow this procedure, this is for privacy reasons. If you aren't a member yet, but want to subscribe, you should go to this page.

The fact that a subject is stored in the archive doesn't mean to say that everything there is to say has been said about it. If you find things that you want to react on, feel free to start a new thread on the mailing list.

Please report to us if you find a link that doesn't work or if you feel that a thread should be removed from this page for other reasons, or maybe you have a suggestion for a thread that should be included.

The number after the link indicates how many postings that thread contains.
