Language acquisition is a natural consequence of human society – it is one of the things that makes us humans – and all children exposed to language will acquire it naturally, without deliberate effort of teaching and learning.
This workshop will talk about similarities and differences between First and Second Language Acquisition, address some the myths and popular beliefs behind both and end with strategies to foster first and second language development as well as how to identify and monitor red flags that might otherwise compromise or delay the child’s natural progression of language and speech.
