Ways to help your child with the second language acquisition

There are so many ways to help your child at home even if you are not fluent in the target language they are learning. Here are some tips to do so:

  • ask what they learned in class
  • review their vocabulary or class notes with them 5-10 minutes daily.
  • listen to music in the target language.
  • Watch Television or movies in the target language.
  • Speak the target language if possible at home.
  • Flashcards with vocabulary
  • label items in the house in the target language.
  • use free digital platforms like Duolingo for 5 minutes a day.
