For parents who want their children to learn foreign languages, the following are some tips on how to support your child:

 

  • Inform yourself by becoming knowledgeable about the language program
  • Be supportive at all times since your child’s success in the language program will be affected by your attitude.
  • Keep up with the basic sentence structures and vocabulary your child is learning; when possible, try to reuse them in daily life. Your interest will enhance theirs.
  • Encourage your child to speak the foreign language at home, but do not force it him or her to do so.
  • Encourage your child to listen to radio programs and watch television programs in the foreign language.
  • Try to take advantage of situations that will help increase your child’s exposure to the foreign language and its culture.
  • Try to attend cultural events with your child.
  • Be proud of your child’s achievement by showing how pleased you are with his or her progress.
