Bilingual Education: Magical Abilities of Children


There are many benefits to children learning another language in addition to their mother tongue. It is also a well known fact that children possess an absorbent mind for language from birth to age six. There is also a misconception among parents, however, that children are just “natural” learners who effortlessly store and maintain knowledge of languages. Dual language development requires the conscious effort, reinforcement, and support of parents, teachers, and family members. Please join us for this informative workshop, which provides a background on how children learn English as a foreign language.  Hour one will offer theory and foundation; hour two will offer helpful parent tips on how to encourage English as a foreign language development at home.
