    · Dispelling bilingualism myths: children won’t get confused between languages, how language code switching develops

    · Scientific research: current clinical and scientific evidence of the effects of bilingualism

    · Parent child interaction: skills and strategies to adopt with a child to foster bilingualism into adulthood

    When?

    Sunday 28th January 2018 between 10:30am-12:00pm at King's Cross (venue TBC).

    My qualifications and experience

    I'm a qualified bilingual Speech and Language Therapist with a specialist interest and passion in bilingualism. I have two children – a 6 year old boy and a 7 month old girl. I brought up my 6 year old son to speak Cantonese, Mandarin and English, and speaks each language fluently.

    I have worked with children for over 12 years (0-18), and adults with acquired brain injury, mental health and learning disabilities for the last five years. I’m an absolute language lover having studied French, German, Japanese, Cantonese, Mandarin, BSL and Makaton and have a fascination about languages and the brain.
