Overview

"The lives of many families involve contact with more than one language and culture on a daily basis. Growing Up with Languages is aimed at the many parents and professionals who feel uncertain about the best way to go about helping children gain maximum benefit from the situation." This guide is illustrated by glimpses of life from interviews with fifty families from all around the world. The trials and rewards of life with two languages and cultures are discussed in detail, and followed by practical advice on how to support the child's linguistic development.
