Tรญa Maria helped us dig through a guyโ€™s blackberry bushes to purchase some excellent wood from the river while my children became fast friends with the ownerโ€™s children. Lovely family and a skill craftsman. Fun day in a beautiful place. #nolanguagebarriersforchildren #bilingualbabies #buylocal @marialaconstructora

Do you want to learn more about bilingualism? Let's do this!โ โ €
โ โ €
1๏ธโƒฃHere is the first thing we want to answer...โ€œWill exposing my child to more than one language delay communication milestones?โ€ The answer is โ€œNO!โ€ Raising your child to be bilingual or multilingual can actually be beneficial for their language development, organizational skills and cognition! โ โ €
โ โ €
2๏ธโƒฃ โ€œWhat is the best way to expose my child to two languages?โ€ The truth is there is not only one way to expose your child to two languages and one way is not necessarily โ€œbetterโ€ than another. All of these options have worked and have been successful for millions of families! It is your choice and you need to determine what method works best for your family dynamic. Here are a few common ways to expose your child to more than one language:โ โ €
โ โ €
SIMULTANEOUS ACQUISITION: Your child will learn both languages at the same time (typically before 3 years old): โ โ €
โ 
๐Ÿ’๐Ÿป๐Ÿ’๐Ÿปโ€โ™‚๏ธOne parent = One language. The other parent = The other language. Each parent speaks a different language with the child. Each parent should speak in the language the are most comfortable speaking. (e.g. Mom grew up speaking Mandarin, so she speaks only Mandarin to the child. Dad is not bilingual so he speaks only English with the child). โ โ €
โ โ €
๐Ÿ‘ซBoth parents = Both languages. Each parent speaks both of the languages to the child. The family must determine which context and setting make sense for each language to be used. (For example: The parents may speak English at home but when they go to Grandmaโ€™s house everyone speaks Spanish.)โ โ €
โ โ €
๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿ‘ง๐Ÿ‘ต๐ŸฝOne language is spoken by both parents at home. The other language is used by  a grandparent, nanny, caregiver or siblings. โ โ €
โ โ €
SEQUENTIAL ACQUISITION: Your child will learn one language first and then learn the other language afterwards. (typically occurring after 3 years old): โ โ €
โ โ €
๐Ÿ ๐ŸšŒFormal language learning: The child is exposed to one language at home and then another language at school or a  class. โ โ €
โ โ €
๐Ÿ โœˆ๏ธCircumstantial bilingualism: The child is exposed to one language and then moves to a new environment and learns the second language.

Is your family bilingual?! โ โ €
