How does authentic bilingualism support a child’s development and success?

In today’s world, language skills are regarded as one of the keys to future professional success. Individuals fluent in more than one language tend to adapt better to changes in their environment and demonstrate greater cognitive flexibility. Possessing language skills often goes hand in hand with a better understanding of the culture, traditions, and perspectives of different communities.

How to plan a child’s language education?

Early education plays a key role in shaping the fundamental skills that contribute to the future success of children in life. During the webinar, we will discuss the best practices in early childhood education related to language learning and how it influences child development. Our experts will share their knowledge and explain the difference between “learning English” and “learning in English.”

Why is Canada a model for bilingual education?

Canada is a world leader in bilingual education, having had two main languages, English and French, since the country’s formation. For Canadian educators, bilingualism means more than just learning a second language. Bilingualism is an approach, not just a goal in itself. It’s about giving students the opportunity for full immersion in another language. By being exposed to a multicultural environment, children naturally develop the ability to think in another language and increase their ability to quickly and comfortably adapt to different contexts.
