The Burnaby Festival of Learning is proud to present Raising a Multilingual Child, hosted by the Burnaby Public Library!
Are you a parent or caregiver with a young child who is growing up with English and another language? Are you worried that your child may lose their home language or that they will not learn English properly? Join us to learn practical tools to use in your daily life to support your child as they learn two or more languages. We will give you tools to help your children keep your home language while also learning English, and teach you best practices for raising a bilingual child. This virtual workshop is presented by Dr. Anne Rimrott from Bilingual Family Consulting Group, in partnership with Literacy Now Burnaby.
About Dr. Rimrott:
Anne is both a parent of children growing up with English, German, Bosnian and French and a language acquisition expert with a Ph.D. in linguistics. Knowing the practical side of juggling four languages in her own family on the one hand and the theoretical research on language acquisition on the other, Anne knows about the joys and challenges of bilingual families and is in a unique position to support families in raising children with two or more languages.
