S2 Ep. 8 Robust Vocabulary Instruction in French for Anglophone Parents: Raft challenge with Sarah & Julianne
You asked for it, so I delivered. Join me during this episode as I answer some of the frequent questions I get from families surrounding raising English-French bilingual kids in an English dominant community. During the episode, I talk to a few bilingual kids ranging from 8 to 14 years of age about their thoughts on language use. I also interview my dear husband, Kevin, to ask him about his experience as an anglophone parent raising bilingual kids and his journey as he learned a minority language. I also give several tips on what is required when learning a minority language in order to ensure mastery of this language. Check out the various resources that I mentioned on the "Useful Resources" Page of this Website or click here.
I purposefully posted this episode today, September 25th, Journée des Franco-Ontariens or Franco-Ontarian Day in order to raise a bit of awareness on the importance of placing value on all the languages spoken in the home. Join the Francophone and Francophile community! Get involved with your child's school and find out how you can increase exposure to the French language.
