Raising Bilingual Children
Parents of children who speak two or more languages are often full of questions. Will my child be able to manage with the school language? Should I keep using my mother tongue or should I stop? Are three languages too much for a child? How do we make sure that all languages develop? What are the best methods for raising bilingual children? As part of the ‘I m sorry I’m, late I have kids’ series supported by the Dormant Accounts Fund.
Join Dr Francesca La Morgia, director of Mother Tongues and expert in language development and bilingualism, for this interactive talk. There will be time for questions and discussion, and to share our experiences of parenting through multiple languages.
