trilingual children

Living with three languages

In this webinar for parents of trilingual children, we will discuss the ways in which children become trilingual, and the techniques to develop two different home languages in addition to the school language. If your child is between the ages of 0 and 6, you speak two languages in your household, and your child is using a different language outside the home or at school, this course is for you!
