Assalamu'alaikum, Parents.....how are you today? We hope today is better than yesterday, insyaAllah.
Being a parent is exciting. Of course, it’s also very hard work,
but the thrill of forming a strong bond between you and your
growing child makes it all worthwhile. Knowing that you connect
with each other gives you immense satisfaction and pleasure, and
it also makes your baby feel safe, secure and loved.
Thus, for today, we would like to share with you an interesting topic,
'Raising a Bilingual Child’
There are some parents who speak a language at home that is different
from the language used by the country in which they live; for instance ,when
they are from another country and have not yet mastered the language
of their new country, or when they specifically want their child to learn the
language from other countries in the world.
MAKE YOUR CHOICE!!!
It’s entirely up to you to decide on the way you want to approach bilingualism
in your home, based on your beliefs, personalities, and personal circumstances.
Below are the tips :
1. 1. SELECT THE CORE LANGUAGE
If you decide to use both languages from birth, select one language
to speak exclusively for say, the first six months. This gives your infant
a grounding in these particular language sounds before hearing
2. 2. INTRODUCE THE SECOND LANGUAGE
Let’s your child to listen some videos or songs in that language.
3. 3. GIVE HIM TIME
Your child needs time to grasp the concept that he hears two different
language sounds at home.
4. 4. EVEN THINGS UP
When he is around 2 years old, speak both languages with the same
frequency at home. Your child can switch between them with ease,
and he recognizes that each one has its own characteristics and
5. 5. TAKE HIM TO NURSERY
At the age of 2 or 3 years old, enroll your child in his local playgroup
or nursery. You’ll be surprised at how quickly he adapts and learns to use
each language in its appropriate context.
6. 6. AVOID CONFRONTATION
Once your child competent in each language, he’ll choose the one that
helps him best express his feelings at home. Don’t insist that he always
speaks only one language, as this could create battles between you.
