MLF Lab went to camp!

In July 2021, the Multilingual Families Lab partnered once again with ABC Head Start Society to provide a dual-language program in their Summer Camp! Wendy, Rita and Natalie adapted and led the activities this summer. We had so much fun collaborating with teachers to discuss bilingualism with children.  Within this summer camp context, we met with children three times to talk about being bilingual.  In our little group of children, more than 10 languages were spoken: Punjabi, Somali, German, Harari, Tagalog, Tamil, Bambara, Urdu, Malayalam and French. Amazing! We learned how to say “Hello” in different languages and read stories in multiple languages.  We helped children create their own dual-language book using their home language and their own drawings.
