Need to Know Tips for Raising Bilingual Children

No matter how many languages you speak as a parent, the truth is, there are always going to be challenges to raising a bilingual child.

Kids are smart—smarter than we often give them credit for—but learning a new language—let alone two—at any age is difficult. It takes a lot of encouragement, positive reinforcement, patience, and determination—on everyone’s part.

There are plenty of ways you can encourage and nurture your child’s bilingual abilities from a very young age—whether you’re monolingual or bilingual.
