Raising bilingual children

6th November 2019, 18:30-19:30

Why do some bilingual children prefer one language over the other? Is it true that bilingual children start speaking late? How can I help my child to develop two languages at the same time? How long will it take for my child to learn the school language? Is it too late to start speaking my mother tongue to my child?
These and other questions will be addressed in this informative talk for parents who are raising bilingual or multilingual children.
Parents will learn about bilingual language development, and about some of the most common strategies to support their child’s linguistic development throughout childhood.
We offer practical advice based on the latest research and there will also be a free booklet to take away at the end of the talk.
