Being Bilingual workshop

6th March 2019
We were delighted to welcome Dr Dora Alexopoulou from Cambridge Bilingualism Network, University of Cambridge to school. She spoke to parents and carers about the benefits of raising your child bilingually. 
It was a fascinating session, highlighting the importance of speaking/reading to your child in both English and home languages. 
Dora explained how one of the richest ways to teach language is through books. Children's stories, read aloud are a great way to learn grammar and sentence structures in any language. She highlighted how the language used in books is of greater linguistic complexity than that heard on prime time TV.
