“Only the child under three can construct the mechanism of language, and he can speak any number of languages, if they are in his environment at birth.”
Exposing children to a different language during the first six years of life, gives them the keys to open doors to new experiences, cultures, and the expansion of their horizons. In this three hour workshop, we will explore how the development of language and the acquisition of a second language happen during the first six years of life.
Together we will discover tools that will help administrators, parents and teachers to prepare themselves and the environment to support the bilingual child in a Montessori Way.
Some of the topics that we will cover in the workshop are:
- Ages and stages of first and second language development in the first six years of life
- How to communicate with children in a bilingual environment
- How to support bilingualism at home and at school
