Multilingual Living is delighted to announce its second Language Challenge 180 giveaway prize from Ana Lomba! This giveaway will only be open for 7 days, so enter today!
The winner of our first Language Challenge 180 giveaway is Sophie in New Zealand! Congratulations! Thank you everyone for entering our first Language Challenge 180 giveaway! Your answers were amazing and fantastic!!
As we all know, learning language in context is the way to go. Stories are one of the best ways to share language with our children. The words, sentences and storyline captivate even the youngest language learner. When combined with charming and captivating pictures, we have everything we could want!
Ana Lomba is an award-winning author and language educator who has created some fantastic online story-books which provide a fun and entertaining way to immerse children in language. Her books can we used both for new language learners as well as for children who are growing up in a household where a non-community language is spoken. Parents are encouraged to experience the stories along with their children so that discussions can take place along the way (or parents can start to learn the language along with their children!). You and your children will delight in the unexpected twists and turns of the stories (these aren’t your standard fairy tales).
The key with Ana Lomba‘s stories is that you should read/listen to them over and over again with your child to help with language mastery. With each reading, you and your child will pick up more sounds, intonations, words, sentences and meaning. There is no need to read each story in one sitting. Go chapter by chapter and talk about each step in the story as much as possible. Point out things in the pictures, discuss the storyline and really get to know the words and the meaning before moving on.
We are delighted to have Ana Lomba as a Language Challenge 180 sponsor! We adore her e-books and appreciate her many, many efforts to support bilingualism and multilingualism around the world! Please make sure to read her articles about what you can do with only 15 minutes for language learning/exposure!
Ana Lomba is giving away a free month of access to her e-books! Enter to win below!
