Learning Two Languages


Raising multilingual children offers opportunities as well as unique challenges. Parents may ask a range of questions: Should they speak to their child in their native language? How will that affect their child's ability to learn English? If they speak to their child in English, will he lose his native language? And what happens when parents speak to their child in two languages?

This article will answer many of these questions, while providing tips for what parents can do support their children's language and literacy development at home.
