The workshop convenor is Dr Liz Ellis. She is a lecturer in Linguistics at the University of New England at Armidale, specialising in bilingualism and second language learning. This free workshop will look at how family languages can be passed on to children while still ensuring kids learn the English they need for school and work in the future. Bilingualism can be a great asset to children, helping their academic, social and emotional development, provided it is supported at home and at school. Please call for bookings.
