Event Details

Join BABYlon! for a lecture by Sarah Nakamaru, Assistant Professor of ESL and Linguistics at the Borough of Manhattan Community College.  

What does it mean to be bilingual and how does one get that way?   This workshop will introduce cognitive and social aspects of first and additional language acquisition, with a particular focus on bilingual and early second language acquisition for young children.  Among the topics addressed will be developmental stages of language development, the role of caregivers and the environment in language acquisition, simultaneous and sequential bilingual language acquisition for young children, cognitive and social benefits of bilingualism, and common myths and misconceptions about language acquisition and bilingualism.  Time will be provided for participants to ask questions and share their own experiences with learning and using multiple languages. 


Sarah Nakamaru is Assistant Professor of ESL and Linguistics at the Borough of Manhattan Community College.  She also teaches courses in bilingual education and second/foreign language pedagogy at New York University.  Dr. Nakamaru lives in Inwood with her husband and four-year-old son, who is a bilingual speaker of English and Swiss German.
