Growing up bilingual

Expert: Dr Virginia Lam
Masterclass structure: 14 lessons ( 43:40 minutes)

Sobre esta clase

Growing up bilingual can be both a privilege and a challenge. Questions such as ‘Shall I speak only in language to my child or change between my two languages?’; ‘Should both parents speak in both languages or should each one stick to one language?’ or ‘Will my child take longer to start speaking if they grow up using two languages?’ are common amongst parents. In this masterclass, Dr Virginia Lam provides answers to these questions and many more on the topic of growing up bilingual. This masterclass is of interest to all parents whose children are growing up in a bilingual environment.
