Welcome to the Multilingual Parenting newsletter!


Thank you for taking the time to read the Multilingual Parenting newsletter!
As my holidays in Finland are drawing to a close, I am reflecting on my daughters' multilingual journey. I realise how immensely thankful I am that they have been able to pick up the languages from both sides of the family and how this enables them now as adults to maintain their own relationships to the extended family. Language skills truly are a gift that keeps on giving. from one generation to another.

May the peace and power be with you.

3. FROM THE ARCHIVES 
Parents raising bilingual children are creative!

4. TOP TIP
Immersion is the best boost for a minority language, also for older children and teenagers. Look for opportunities to let them participate in their favourite activities and hobbies in their minority language – think summer camps, sports, arts or even computer game courses. Anything, as long as your kiddo is interested and it is in the right language!

5. Q&A
When to teach literacy in the minority language and how to support a bilingual child with a new language?

6. INDIVIDUAL FAMILY LANGUAGE COACHING
Not all questions can be answered through simple Q&As - if you are looking for help with planning your children's bilingual upbringing, please get in touch - simply reply to this email with a request for more information. The process starts with a free exploration session (online) where we determine whether Family Language Coaching would be suitable for your family.

7. HELP SHARE THE WORD
Would you like to help sharing the word about raising bilingual children? It is very easy! When you read an article on the site, use the social media buttons at the bottom to share it with your friends.
Another way to help is to use the Amazon affiliate links that you can find on the home page - click on the relevant book link (US, UK and Germany are available), then go off and buy whatever you want on Amazon. You are of course welcome to buy my book, but it is not a must. A small % of Amazon's profits on anything you buy within 24 hours gets credited to multilingualparenting.com and the money goes towards sending this newsletter and the upkeep of the website.
