New Book for Raising Billingual and Trilingual Children!

This book introduces basic knowledge and practical examples of raising children bilingually and trilingually at home outside of Japan, concentrating on the crucial period (ages 0-5) considered most important for children’s language acquisition.

Authored and edited by Dr. Hitomi Oketani, who has been conducting research and developing language education practices for children in bilingual and trilingual households residing in the state of Michigan, this book cites multiple case studies and describes the benefits and best practices of raising children with fluency in two or more languages while simultaneously helping them achieve the highest level of well-being possible.

Dr. Oketani’s useful book offers parents and teachers a practical and holistic roadmap to nourish their children’s multilingualism in early life.
