Parents who commit to a language immersion education are encouraged to help their child further develop his native language. It is extremely important for you to continuously speak the native language to your child and to help him make the connection between his native language and the second language. For instance, you should provide him with native language vocabulary for the subject(s) that are taught in the second language and take him to cultural events. You also should have the child use his native language on a regular basis, especially if your family lives in a country where the native language is not spoken outside of the school.
How can I help my child develop his/her native language?
