Two Languages, Twice the Opportunities Dual Language Learning Campaign

Two Languages, Twice the Opportunities

When we support children in learning more than one language, we give them a superpower! Being multilingual can lead to improved academic and social emotional abilities, more career opportunities, and better financial outcomes in your children’s lives. Plus, they will grow up with greater awareness of their heritage, create more meaningful connections with friends and family, and enter kindergarten ready to succeed.

  • Praise your child’s efforts to speak your home language.
  • Read books to your child in your home language or that feature your culture.
  • Play your favorite cultural games while speaking your home language.
  • Ask your child’s teachers and caregivers to support your home language.
  • Take your child to cultural festivals or events to learn about their heritage.
  • Teach your child songs in your home language. Make it fun!
  • Watch age-appropriate videos and movies with your child in your home language. Be mindful of screen time limits.
