Raising Bilingual Children - Free Webinar in English 

Raising Bilingual Children - Free Webinar in English 

Apr 05, 2023
Online via Zoom 
Free (registration required) 

Raising children is one of life's most rewarding experiences but can also be stressful. When you're living in a foreign country, it's good to have a support network and reliable sources of information. 

Nord Anglia International School Rotterdam (NAISR) believes that parental education is key for raising happy children and building strong families and communities. Therefore throughout 2023, they will continue to offer free online parent education presentations to help equip and inform parents as they raise their kids in the Netherlands.  

Gain insights and advice on raising bilingual children

The first of NAISR's free webinars for the year is coming up next month and, during this presentation, they will talk about "Raising Bilingual Children".  

Are you also teaching your children another language? Are you worried about the difficulties of having two or more languages at home? This presentation will cover language development and how / if this differs in mono- bi- and multilingual children.  

Being bilingual has a profound effect on the brain and so information will also be shared on how this can open up a broad variety of academic, economic, social and cultural opportunities leading into adulthood. 

So, if you have a bilingual child and want to know more on this topic, register now for the one-hour free presentation via Zoom. The Zoom invitation link will then be sent to you before the presentation.

NAISR has an extensive EAL (English as an Additional Language) programme, in addition to our Modern Languages Programme, where a second language is taught to our students daily. 

NAISR’s highly qualified teachers pride themselves on their ability to personalise learning for every individual student, nurturing and inspiring them to achieve their academic potential while developing the skills and mindset to thrive. Nord Anglia International School Rotterdam is part of the Nord Anglia Education global family of over 80 schools.
