Raising a Bilingual Child by Barbara Zurer Pearson

Book Description

If you would like your children to experience the benefits of becoming bilingual, but you aren t sure how to teach them a second language, then Raising a Bilingual Child is the perfect step-by-step guide for you. Raising a Bilingual Child provides parents with information, encouragement, and practical advice for creating a positive bilingual environment. It offers both an overview of why parents should raise their children to speak more than one language and detailed steps parents can take to integrate two languages into their child s daily routine. Raising a Bilingual Child also includes inspirational first-hand accounts from parents. It dispels the myth that bilingualism may hinder a child s academic performance and explains that learning languages at a young age can actually enhance a child s overall intellectual development."
