7 Steps to Raising a Bilingual Child
This giveaway is now closed. Thank you for your participation.
The winner is Gillian.
I’ve always felt it was important for children to learn a second language especially since we live in Hawaii where there’s such a diverse mixture of cultures.
7 Steps to Raising a Bilingual Child by Naomi Steiner explores “common myths about bilingualism, explains how the brain learns more than one language, answers frequently asked questions, and reveals an array of bilingual resources available to you and your family regardless of where you live. The book presents common hurdles and provides useful tips for conquering them. It also helps you navigate foreign-language learning opportunities in the public school system and offers concrete advice for handling special situations that can affect bilingual academic progress.”
Being someone who took 4 years of Japanese language in high school and still cannot speak it, I was very interested in what this book had to offer. I really want my girls to learn a second language and feel that it will be beneficial to their future.
This book covers topic such as defining goals, how to become a bilingual coach, predictable obstacles, reading & writing, and adapting to the school environment. It also includes charts and worksheets to help you with your plan of attack and to stay on course.
It was a very easy book to read and to follow along. It gave me some great insight into what’s invovled in rasing a bilingual child and all the ups and downs that come with it. However, in the end I feel that it’s totally worth the effort.
