Child Development Podcast – episode 10

By Aug.18, 2021

We’re pleased to let you know that the new episode of our podcast is out! In this episode, Dr Joanna Kolak from our lab talks to Dr Francesca La Morgia – lecturer, researcher, consultant and trainer, the founding director of Mother Tongues, a non for profit organisation that promotes multilingualism in Ireland. Her main interests are language development, multilingualism and intercultural practices in education and in the arts. 

Francesca was telling us about language development of bilingual children – how does it differ from monolingual children’s development and how can parents support their children in acquiring their two (or more) languages in a natural and playful way. Like Francesca said, “because at the end of the day, children learn through play, children learn through engagement with others”. Many great tips and some words of support for parents of bilingual children!
