Family Language Coaching
Do you have questions on how to make the most of the languages in your child’s environment? Are you worried that your heritage language is going to be left behind and that your children will not be able to communicate with their extended family? Are you concerned that the many language you have in your family will confuse your child?
Please get in touch to arrange a free on-line exploration session to see how I can best help you. A few coaching sessions or Family Language Plan can help you on your way to successfully raising your child to become bilingual or multilingual. A small investment in your children’s future now can be life-changing for them later.
