The ACT Bilingual Education Alliance recently held an online seminar for families and educators helping to raise children in more than one language.
This informative seminar with Dr Mandy Scott (a linguistics researcher at the ANU and undoubtedly Canberra’s foremost expert on bilingual education) outlined the benefits, approaches and challenges, and then a wealth of knowledge was shared by panel members from the community as well.
You can read our Committee President’s panel presentation text in German and in English, and his reflections on the seminar. (He lost his voice shortly before the presentation, so when you watch the recorded seminar you’ll get to hear his robot voice covering his presentation.)
There is a recording of the one hour session that you can watch, including some excellent discussion and ideas being shared.
