The Bilingual Environment: how can we optimise our children's linguistic development?
You want your child to be competent in English to :
Feel comfortable in an English-speaking environment;
Communicate with grandparents and other family;
Benefit from the obvious advantage English gives as an adult.
But as parents, we all worry about how to go about this. Surrounded by self help books, well-meaning grandparental advice, local creches or schools with varying ideas about bilingualism and the natural desire to want what is best for our children, it can be difficult to know where to turn.
Join Derek Ferguson, Director of Roaming Schoolhouse, for an interactive discussion on language systems and development. You will go home with a list of clear pointers on how to approach language acquisition with grace and poise for your own context.
