Summary and Conclusion

Follow Your Child's Lead...

If children are learning a second language, it's important that they first learn the language their parents speak. Children will learn to speak English better if they are first able to learn the language their parents speak at home.

When talking with children about books, it's important for parents to use the language they are most comfortable with. And it's important to talk about what the children are interested in.

Now it's your turn to practice making comments and waiting, asking questions and waiting and responding by adding a little bit more. Go ahead and give it a try!
