Parents in the foreign affairs agencies have a unique opportunity to encourage bilingualism in their children. This evening course explores strategies to take advantage of the multicultural experiences this lifestyle affords. Furthermore, participants will learn about resources available, and the challenges and rewards of raising children bilingually.
"Don't think something is too much for your child. And whatever you expose them to is good. It is up to your family how you want to do it, whatever works."
"This course helped me to realize that more than ever it is important for my children to have opportunities to learn a language. It is also clear that it will take a lot of effort and commitment from me to help them achieve this skill."
