Bilingual children - top tips for bilingual families
Introducing another language
Some parents are fluent in another language and would like to introduce it to their children – again the earlier the better.
In some areas language clubs operate. However these can be counter- productive if they are badly organised – for instance some are large classes that include a broad age-range.
Games and stories for one age group may not be suitable for another. If you can’t find a suitable club, consider starting a small one with friends.
