Description

Childhood Bilingualism and Biliteracy: What are the cognitive, linguistic, and education benefits?

Even though over 150 different languages are spoken in the United States, learning two languages simultaneously is not always viewed positively or well supported in our school systems. Yet, other parts of the world embrace the opportunities of bilingualism and biliteracy. Are there cognitive, linguistic, and educational benefits of childhood bilingualism and biliteracy based on current research evidence? If so, what are they? How can parents foster such skills? This talk will demystify childhood bilingualism and biliteracy, especially when the two languages are as disparate as English and Chinese. 

All are welcome to attend, please register by sending your name, email, and phone number to: UWFriendsof Chinese@outlook.com
