Multilingual Living reader, Kymber, sent in the following language learning activity that she and her family do together! She wrote this in response to Carla’s language activity: Play the Beeping Game with Your Bilingual Children.
The key is to keep this fun – everyone should be able to catch the one another “in the act” of speaking the “other” language. Laughter is key with an activity like this! Make sure to let your kids catch you from time to time.
Thank you Kymber for taking the time to send in this wonderful suggestion!
Each time someone in the household catches the other speaking English, we get a “mark” on a paper posted on the frig and have to pay a price (pennies for kids, dimes for us). At the end of the week, the person with the lease marks wins the pot of money.
We may have to start upping the amount soon as my kids get more money savvy, but the oldest is 7, so this works for now.
Do you have a language activity that you’d like to share?
