Helpful tips and strategies to give you confidence in bringing up little linguists!

About this event

In today’s modern and uber globalised world, one of the biggest advantages we can give our kids is the gift of bilingualism. The benefits of bilingualism are plentiful. Apart from giving them a treasure trove of words and concepts, they’ll also be able to problem-solve with flair, and more. While it might be a tad bit late for us to jump on the bilingual train, it doesn’t mean we can’t give our kids that bilingual edge. In our next webinar - HoneyKids Talks: Raising Bilingual Children - you’ll learn strategies on multilingualism and how you can support your child’s language learning journey. It’s perfect for parents who don’t speak another language or are looking to take their child’s bilingual education to the next level.

What you can expect

We’ll tackle the common challenges faced by children when learning a language. We’ll give parents tips on how to support their child in language learning, share helpful resources parents can use, and most importantly, share tips on picking the right bilingual program. You’ll be hearing from experts Huali Xiong, Principal of Chinese Language and Bilingual Program at CIS, and Zhao-Hui Xu, Director of World Languages at SAS.
