SUPPORTING YOUR BILUNGUAL CHILD IN LEARNING ENGLISH:

Reading is a key skill to progressing with learning and acquiring good language skills and this is especially important for our Bilingual pupils. Reading at home is always encouraged and being exposed to good reading models is beneficial in helping a child understand correct pronunciation, which can in turn benefit a child’s spelling and writing skills. The following are a few websites that provide audio stories with accompanying written texts, so that parents and children can listen and read together or  so that a child can listen to stories by themselves.

Good language skills and correct pronunciation can impact positively on emotional well-being and confidence and have a positive effect on other areas of learning and social skills.
