Are only bilingual parents able to have bilingual children?

Bookmark and Share

Dear Readers,

I received this great short article about new trends happening in bilingual education in young children. What I like is that it address bilingualism as a benefit and as a desired for all children. Please go the link to read from Education.com

Do you think there is a “best” way to introduce a second or third language to children?
Education.com, an online resource for parents and educators of kids in preschool through grade 12, has a great article on this topic. You can see it here: http://www.education.com/magazine/article/Case_Bilingual_Child/?&page[21]=1

Feel free to share with your readers and let me know if there are any topics you’d like to see covered on Education.com.

    Hi Claudia, I work for education.com and am so glad you liked the article. We're a one language family but my son is enrolled in kindergarten in a school that is 85% hispanic. Many of the families are very new to this country so it is truly an "English immersion" experience for their kids. Through the school year I've gained a real appreciation of how challenging that can be. I'm excited to pass along your website to my son's teacher...I think it will be very helpful for a lot of his classmates' parents. Thanks a lot! Kat
