Health Tip of the Day

Teaching Your Child a Second Language

  • Start teaching your child early.

  • Make sure to speak the second language some of the time so your child can use what she's learning.

  • Provide language in a natural setting.

  • Separate the two languages when you speak to your child.

  • Teach your child to read and write the language, not just to speak it.
