An in-depth introduction about one of the four main approaches of raising bilingual children: the minority language at home (MLAH) approach.
In this post I will mention seven ways that I teach my toddler Spanish as a nonnative Spanish speaker.
I will go into ten myths about raising bilingual children and provide examples as to why they are myths.
If you have landed here, I am guessing you are in an interethnic relationship/marriage and are interested in raising a bilingual child. Or, maybe you are an immigrant or second/third-generation immigrant and want to raise your child speaking your native language. Or, perhaps you simply love languages and/or know the benefits of being bilingual and want to jump start your child during the early stages of their language acquisition years. Regardless of the answer you have come to the right place.
Reading is the best way to promote language learning and increase vocabulary knowledge, whether raising a monolingual or multilingual child.
If you are raising a bilingual child and just got a spark of motivation to go off and get some books in the second language, great!
Even better, if you are looking for some great children’s books in Spanish, I already have plenty of recommendations for you! You can find some at the end of this post!
Even though I have numerous years of Spanish education under my belt, the majority of my Spanish knowledge I have learned outside the classroom. I want to share these language learning tips with you today.
If you are interested in learning Spanish, or any language, these tips will be so useful for you. I will also include some of my favorite resources, so make sure to read to the end.
