BILINGUALISM EVERY DAY. Workshop for parents of bilingual children

How can I foster the use of Polish language at home? Does knowing two languages cause confusion to my child? Which language should I speak at home and outside? When should I start speaking Polish to my child? Does bilingualism enhance language impairments? Why my child does not want to speak Polish?

If you are bringing up a child outside of Poland and one of the above questions has crossed your mind, we would like to invite you to the talk ‘Bilingualism everyday’.

The talk is held in Polish and it may be of interest to parents and carers of bilingual children of Polish descent.

Issues discussed:
• child bilingualism&bi-culturalism,
• speech and language development in bilingual children,
• code-switching,
• literacy skills,
• identity construction in bilingual children,
• bilingual upbringing strategies,
• most common challenges of bilingual families of Polish descent,
• practical advice on supporting children bilingualism and fostering the use of Polish language every day.
