Title: Supporting Harmonious Bilingualism through language choice, input, and discourse strategies in bilingual families
Speaker: Annick De Houwer, Ph.D. Professor Emerita of Language Acquisition and Multilingualism at the University of Erfurt, Germany; the Director of The Harmonious Bilingualism Network (HaBilNet)
Abstract: Most parents raising children in bilingual families want their children to speak both languages, and to speak them well. Many children, however, do not. This negatively affects Harmonious Bilingualism within the family. This talk explains how the combined influence of language choice patterns, input characteristics, and discourse strategies used by parents can increase their children’s chances of speaking two languages within the family and thus contribute to Harmonious Bilingualism.
