6. Learn the Language


Your child is learning the language of the host country at school and she/he will be using two languages daily.

  1. Respect your child’s preferred uses of language, even if you do not understand the language he/she prefers to speak in. It may be difficult at some stages of language development for a child to speak about everything in two languages.
  2. Learn the language of the host country with your child. Ask him/her to explain some of its words and phrases to you. Be part of the language learning process of your child.
  3. Attend adult language classes if they are available near you.
  4. Mind that a language is not just words; it includes gestures, looks and body language that you should get acquainted with. So, learn about all aspects connected with language every day while you go out working and shopping.
