Bilingual Family Consulting

Information and practical strategies for successfully raising your child to become bilingual or multilingual

MYTH: My child will become bilingual no problem.

FACT: Many children from multilingual families in the Lower Mainland and elsewhere become monolingual English speakers (even if their parents speak another language at home). Raising children with more than one language typically requires thoughtful planning and conscious effort.

For Families: Personalized consultations and workshops for multilingual families

I offer personalized one-on-one consultations and interactive workshops for families on raising children with two or more languages (see Services for more information).

For Professionals: Presentations on topics surrounding multilingual first language acquisition

For professionals such as early childhood educators, community health nurses, librarians, speech language pathologists, doctors, teachers and school administrators, I offer presentations on a variety of topics regarding child multilingualism (see Services for more information).
