SUPPORTING YOU EAL CHILD
(English as an Additional Language)
TUESDAY 3rd DECEMBER 2.00pm- 2.45pm
Mrs Samina Mustaq, our specialist EAL teacher, met with parents whose children have English as an additional language.
She provided advice and answered many questions about how parents u can support their child’s language development in more than one language. The main advice is keep your home language alive by using it! This will help develop connections in your child’s brain between English and their home language/s, build on your emotional relationship with them and enable them to speak to other members of the family and language community too!
Don’t forget to join the City of Edinburgh Library too, where you can order books and other resources in many different languages for both adults and children.
