April 23, 2010, Newsletter Issue #77: Turning Your Home Into a Language Lab for Your Kids

Tip of the Week

If you want to teach your children a foreign language as home—perhaps as part of a home schooling program—consider carefully in advance what it is you want your kids to be able to do. Some people may just want to gain basic conversational skills. Others are interested in learning a dead language such as Latin. Still others are just going for reading knowledge so they can follow events in foreign newspapers. Whatever your goals, you will have much more success getting and holding your kid's attention if you try to tie their new language with other aspects of their learning. Keep your eyes open for movies, restaurants, ethnic festivals or holidays that will help them see relevance in what they are studying. Kids become world-class learning machines if you can get their interest engaged.
