It's unfortunate that that sign that should have to the character should be up there. But, hey, uh, as I said before, we all make mistakes on. It's all about just using the language. And this is also a very relevant topic because we're talking about Hey, we're talking about using more than one language in a specific situation on the situation that we have in this class is talking about how to raise a child your child on in two languages. Andi. Therefore, this could also apply to a multi lingual setting. It doesn't have to be restricted to two languages. However, the main focus on today's class will be on raising a child in two different languages. So I'd like to provide you first of all a with a slight, a brief introduction toe, but myself, Lily already presented me or introduce me briefly, but I'd like to also expand on that and to explain why this topic is so speci...

al to me. Why it's particularly important, not just personally, but also and for my work on Guy was born in England. I was fortunate enough, and I consider myself to be fortunate to be raised in a bilingual environment, which isn't something that you would maybe consider to be that normal in England. Onda were not that well known for throughout the world for speaking more than one language I admit on. Fortunately, I was raised in an environment where two languages were used, So this is something that's very personal to me as well. I have personal experience. I have a background in this on as a linguist. It's something that someone that in my role is language Ambassador for Bubble, where a aim to transmit the joy on the pleasure like learning languages, brings us all on. Did in this case is a very particular, very special topic because we're talking about giving a child a younger person and what younger person than ourselves the ability from day one to speak another language for several different reasons.

And we'll also be looking how to create a bilingual environment for your child. And you might have picked up on the be saying your child. I'd also like to stress that it doesn't have to be your child. It could be your grandchild. It could be the Children of your of a friend of yours that's very dear to you. And you've been in contact with the parents or the parent and the the 50 You've discussed this. But this is something we'll be looking up at a later stage in the class.

Class Description

We all know learning a new language to be a daunting prospect. It’s hard to identify where to get started, what elements of speech to focus on, and how to get organized. The fear of making mistakes can be particularly crippling, preventing us from leaving our comfort zones and talking to native speakers.

Matthew Youlden is a world-wide famous polyglot from Babbel language. He speaks 14 different languages, and has the belief that these anxieties can be turned into a toolkit for learning a language quickly. Once we’ve placed aside the fear of failure, we can jump right into putting our new skills to the test - because conversations in a new language leads to fluency.
