Description

Why, How and Where to Raise Bilingual Kids - even if you only speak one language

Presented by French Morning

Why foster bilingualism in children, how to support and encourage bilingualism even when parents are monolinguals, and where to find bilingual programs and resources in DC. Come learn about all of this and more from teachers, exhibitors and fellow parents during DC's first Bilingual Education Fair.

Co-hosted by DC Public Library, Office of the Deputy Mayor for Education (TBC) and DC Language Immersion Project

Participate with your child in one of four story times in Hebrew, French, Mandarin and Spanish, and discover why children are such born linguists. Presentations will follow on the cognitive and economic benefits of being bilingual, and on tools and resources to foster bilingualism.

Representatives from DC's Dual Language programs will be there to showcase their programs and answer your questions. Other exhibitors will include language and culture organizations based in DC, bilingual publishers, app developers, theatre companies, daycare operators, tutors, etc.
