BILINGUALISM AT LIA
To begin, we must make it clear that a child’s “mother tongue” is the foundation upon which all other languages will be built.
Even if a child’s mother tongue is neither French nor English, he must have a strong command of this language and be able to both read and write it. If this should be the case for your child, we strongly encourage you to do what it takes to ensure he obtains a strong command of his mother tongue.
We are convinced that language and culture are very closely linked. By learning a new language from someone, the child discovers the specificities of that person’s culture, including humour, worldview, and other cultural attributes.
