Language immersion

Were you 'immersed' in a language (or more than one) in early childhood, allowing you to grow up bilingual, trilingual or whatever? Did you immerse your own kids? What's it been like, during and after the immersion?

I wasn't immersed so for any language tuition that I've ever had, I've been past the early years. Learning in middle childhood or later there's no doubt that things are more difficult. But some people make it a lifelong professional interest, or hobby, to learn many languages.

To this comm's Moderator: please may we have a 'language immersion' tag?
