Cancelled - NEW - Supporting young bilingual children - London

Date
17/05/2019 09:00 - 15:30
Description

Most teachers and practitioners in the UK now work within complex communities and increasingly large numbers of children are bilingual. Teacher's daily work is with children who speak more than one language but their curriculum and assessment are monolingual and English.

This new course will explore bilingual children's use of first languages and learning of a new language in the early years of schooling. The advantages of growing up learning more than one language will be discussed in relation to recent research. To give children the best chance of success, strategies will be suggested for fostering children's bilingualism and supporting and assessing the learning of a new language, creating environments where multilingualism is a postive resource.
