Multilingual Living reader, Ida, sent in the following tip for how she gets her bilingual child to use the minority language in a fun, innovative way. Thank you Ida for taking the time to send in yet another wonderful tip!
My son is only 2 years old but we do a lot of language games. A lot of songs, books, rhymes.
One thing that he loves to do is to help us put things in the refridgerator when we come back from the grocery store. He gets to unpack the bags, holding up one item at the time and saying the word in Swedish or in French (depending on who’s helping him).
It’s so much fun to see how many things he knows!
Thank you, Ida, for sending us this language activity!
