Gunma JALT:

Raising Bilingual Children

Date: Sunday, June 10th, 2018 Time: 2:00 PM - 4:30 PM

Speaker: Mary Nobuoka

Description:
Many people think that children raised by parents who speak two or more languages will naturally become bilingual or multilingual. However, in a monolingual country, this is not so easy. Raising a bilingual child in Japan (or countries like the USA where the majority language dominates) requires planning and attention. This presentation will alert parents to the challenges of raising a bilingual child and share the factors for success. Tips for adding bi-literacy skills will also be included. This talk will be of benefit to any family that is hoping their child(ren) will be bilingual, or to teachers of children who are being raised bilingually.
