Parenting a Polyglot
Speak up!

Polyglot Indonesia wants to now include families in our communities. Well, we’ve never really excluded them (or you in this matter), although I must say, some of our meet-up topics were geared towards the free and single, such as speed-mingling. Anyway, let’s focus on you!

Do you have children?

Do you want your child to be a polyglot?

Do you have questions about it?

Do you have tips about it?

Come and join our community then! We are launching our new “Parenting a Polyglot” section in our website dedicated for this issue. We’ll have articles about raising bilingual/multilingual children; we’ll inform you about events that are connected with this issue, there will even be a corner entitled Chandra’s Corner, where you can unload your worries regarding the upbringings of your offsprings to our Polyglot Parent.

Our first advice: there are multiple steps and also approaches in raising a petit(e) polyglot. One thing that is still being underestimated is the success factor of a network. You need to find, what I like to call, a "circle of support", but it can also go by the name of support network, and get together with them so that your child can get to practice and experience to speak the language you are teaching him/her. Sure, going to the movies is a good way for the child to listen to another language, but boy, does my arm hurt trying to cover all the subtitles so that my child doesn’t read it. Even “I” read it, I can’t help it, I’m automatically drawn to it! It’s even worse because I then tend to get all Grammar Police about it. But that’s another topic.

To summarize: finding a circle of support is very important – and Polyglot Indonesia is offering that! So, come and join us! We look forward to having you with us at “Parenting a Polyglot”!
