With the pace of internationalization and globalization, more and more overseas families and mixed Chinese families are emerging in Shanghai. Members within such families usually communicate in two or more languages. Children's speech and language development are affected by the environment as early as in infancy. Children normally master pronunciation and learn basic vocabulary from the age of three, and their language ability, expression, and communication abilities are further improved as they grow older. However, many multilingual families have major concerns over their children's language development, especially for the second language.

Through this workshop, under the guidance of ELG's Speech-Language Pathologist, Tiffany Chen, parents will establish a correct understanding of their children's language development in a multilingual environment, understand and identify possible language development issues that need attention. Finally, parents will learn how to create an optimal environment for children's language development.

Key Takeaways:

  • Clarify your misconceptions about children's bilingual learning
  • Answer questions about children's language development, communication, and expression skills
  • Understand what factors affect children's successful acquisition of a second language
  • Establish a better understanding of second language development
  • Learn how to create an optimal environment for children's language development
  • Help children learn a second language better and support their future academic development

Targeted At:

Parents of 2-8-year-old children. Parents of children beyond this age are also welcome to learn!
