How to support reading in two languages
++Free for members. REGISTRATION NEEDED – scroll down ++
Reading does not occur naturally and it is an activity that requires support and explicit teaching. It is also a great asset for multilingual speakers, often neglected because it is complex to support.
In this talk, we will look at the challenges in reading in a minority language. We will look at both data from research and good practices adopted at schools and in families to support biliteracy.
There will be an opportunity for discussion and Q&A.
