Series 1 Episode 4 Thumbnail Contextual Bilingualism

We continue our series exploring all different types of bilingual families – because we believe any exposure to a second language is better than none at all. The fourth installment of #BilingualWe gives us a window into Heather’s world: how does she pass along the Spanish language to her son Thomas when she is the only bilingual member of the family? Listen as we chat about contextual bilingualism – the brain and social science behind method, and tangible examples of what that method looks like in Heather’s household.
