Raising bilingual children in Ireland
A talk at dlrLexIcon

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 talks 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. They will also find out more about the cognitive, social and educational benefits of bilingualism across the lifespan.
