A factual account of bilingualism and multilingualism in our personal and professional lives

A great post by Eugenia Loras, answering the following questions:

  1. At what age should a child start an additional language?
  2. How frequently should the child be exposed to the additional language?
  3. Will the child get confused?

  5. Should the new language start when they start learning it at school?
  6. Is there something more we must do as parents and / or teachers?
