Books for Parents

Language Strategies for Trilingual FamiliesOver the next few months we are publishing two books aimed at parents with multilingual children. In February we are publishing Language Strategies for Trilingual Families by Andreas Braun and Tony Cline. Then in April we are publishing the 4th edition of Colin Baker’s A Parents’ and Teachers’ Guide to Bilingualism.

Both books examine the challenges facing multilingual families and offer advice for bringing up their children with more than one language. The books belong to our Parents’ and Teachers’ Guides series which aims to provide immediate advice and practical help on topics where parents and teachers frequently seek answers.

Language Strategies for Trilingual Families provides realistic accounts of the challenges faced by trilingual families with children. The book is based on interviews with 70 different trilingual families in England and Germany as well as online forum contributions on www.trilingualism.org. Corey Heller, founder of Multilingual Living, says: “Every trilingual family should have this book on hand.”

A Parents' and Teachers' Guide to BilingualismColin Baker’s 4th revised edition of A Parents’ and Teachers’ Guide to Bilingualism updates the successful accessible guide and includes more information on bilingualism in the digital age, and incorporates the latest research in areas such as neonatal language experience, multilingualism, language mixing and the effect that siblings have on family language choice. Colin is an expert in bilingualism who raised his own three children bilingually and has worked in the field for over 20 years.
