INTERNATIONAL DAY OF MULTILINGUALISM Celebrating linguistic diversity everywhere YOUR MULTILINGUAL CHILD Children all over the world grow up speaking two, three, or even more languages. In fact, there are fewer people that only use one language than there are people who use two or more! In many places, children develop easily in their languages because they live in communities where these languages are spoken regularly. For families who are tr ying to pass on languages that are not widely spoken around them, things can feel more difficult. VALUE YOUR OWN LANGUAGE No language is more important for a young child than the language of their caregivers. The Parents' languages (if they are different) are at the centre of a child's development. Keeping your language strong will help your child develop in other languages too. This is why it's important that you do your job, even when it's not easy! DON'T TAKE OUR WORD FOR IT! Read the research behind the insights! To celebrate the International Day of Multilingualism, we have made over 60 articles and book chapters free to read until 31 May 2020.
