New Seminar Date: Raising Bilingual Children (Amsterdam, April 16)

It’s Spring time (even if it doesn’t feel like it yet…) and that means it’s time for my semi-annual trip to the welcoming Jacaranda Tree Montessori in Amsterdam. This seminar is for parents who are thinking about, or have already chosen bilingualism/multilingualism for their children. It’s a little bit of theory (but fun, I promise) and a lot of practical information on ways and means to pursue bilingualism, including different approaches and family language planning. This jam-packed seminar is the constantly-evolving product of over a decade of working with families and continuous integration of new research knowledge, all tied up in a two-hour bilingualpalooza. It’s a great way to learn a little more about bilingualism, get direction to set you on the right track or correct course if necessary, and to connect with other families in AMS who are on the same journey.
You can register via Jacaranda Tree Montessori

    Since Amsterdam is a bit out of the way for me, I’d like to ask if you teach any seminars in the The Hague or Rotterdam area. My kids are 7 and 2, and we’re a bilingual Dutch/German family. I also have some questions about introducing English into our household (I am an English teacher and a great proponent of early childhood exposure to languages).

      Hi Hilde – I do seminars in The Hague once or twice a year – I don’t have a date planned for the next one, but possibly in June, and if not then in the fall. I’ve been in touch with a couple of organisations about co-hosting seminars in Rotterdam but nothing has been finalised yet, so no firm plans there, I will put up new dates on the website as they are set!

    Hi Eowyn,
    Simone suggested that we should contact you 3 languages for our child. Now our son is 18months. He goes to Dutch day care 4 days a week and listen to his Thai mom in Thai and his Finnish dad in Finnish. I and my husband communicate in English. So Neo understands Dutch well and say only “née” no in Dutch. basically he doesnot speak much. He does not reaponse to us. Now we are not sure what is the reason of this. Because of language issues, too young or doesnot want to listen the parent. We are quite confusing. What should we do to understand each other and support him to speak our languages. Do we need the special course to learn about this child language development? Thanks in advance and Best, Patama
