Topic - Raising Bilingual Children: Facts, Myths, Benefits and Strategies

We are surrounded by language during nearly every waking moment. As the world becomes more interconnected, bilingualism has become a norm. According to research, bilingual education has a lot of benefits such as strengthening cognitive abilities, developing task-switching capacities and appreciation of different cultures.

In this webinar, we will be exploring the myths of bilingualism versus the facts. We will also be sharing guides and tips on how you can support your young children on their bilingual education.

Join us on Wednesday, 7th December 2022, 12pm – 1pm SGT.

This webinar is suitable for early years and elementary parents who are planning or are currently raising their children in bilingual education.

Meet Our Speaker

As the Director of the EAL, Bilingual and Home Language programs at Stamford American International School, I have focused on supporting language learning across all grade levels, supporting teachers, designing and implementing our comprehensive programs, and partnering with the community. Multilingualism and multiculturalism is a passion of mine and it has been an honor to work alongside such a dedicated group of teachers, leaders and community members for the past 9+ years at Stamford. For the past 28 years I lived and worked in the U.S., Mexico, Shanghai and now, Singapore. I have two children who are successful alumni of Stamford.
