what’s your plan for raising bilingual children?
You are a parent who would love to see your child be bilingual, but you haven’t created a plan…yet.
Take Elizabeth and David for example. Elizabeth grew up in Mexico and moved to the USA when she was a young adult. David grew up in the USA in a household where Spanish was spoken. They wanted to raise their two-year-old son to be bilingual. But then the doubts arose…
Should we speak English and Spanish at home? Or just Spanish?
What about when he goes to kindergarten and he doesn’t understand English?
What do we do when he responds back to us in English? And why do our nieces and nephews seem to prefer speaking only English?
Will being bilingual cause a language delay?
What really helps a child to become bilingual?
Will TV help him to learn Spanish? A fancy app? Flashcards?
What Elizabeth and David needed were evidence based answers to the doubts they were having. And they needed a plan to support their bilingual son’s language development- something that felt natural to their household. So, what did they do?
They got our course, our book, and signed up for an individual coaching session to discuss their family’s situation and get advice from me, a trilingual speech therapist who has worked with hundreds of bilingual families.
Do you feel like you need a plan? Without a plan, you may struggle and find that raising bilingual littles can feel like paddling upstream.
You’d love to raise your children to speak your heritage language, or a foreign language. You know all of the benefits of bilingualism, but you may feel uncertain about the how and when…or sometimes those lingering “what ifs”!
What if bilingualism can cause a language delay? What if my child doesn’t like to speak in anything other than the official language spoken in our country?
And maybe, your whole quest to raise your child to be bilingual feels more like a chore instead of the adventure it should be.
Here’s where we come in: books and courses for parents of bilinguals birth to five made by a trilingual speech therapist.
