Raising Bilingual Children, A Workshop for Parents and Educators

Date: 10/10/2018

Time: 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm


Location
Special Collections Seminar Room, E-2340



Description

The topic is child bilingualism, specifically family bilingualism (where one or both parents speak something other than the mainstream language). I will talk about the benefits of family bilingualism and common misconceptions associated with it, ways of promoting it, and the way bilingual children’s speech is different from that of monolingual speech, plus suggestions and techniques for parents and educators.


The event format is a one-hour presentation with integrated questions, followed by 20 minutes of discussion.
