Kletsheads is my podcast about bilingual children for parents, teachers and speech language therapists. What can you expect if you’re raising your children bilingually? What’s important? What will help your children’s language development and what won’t? In each episode, I discuss the science behind the language development of bilingual children with a different expert. Along the way, there are practical tips, we hear from children about what it’s like growing up with two or more languages, and we talk to parents and professionals about their experiences with bilingual children.
Until now, Kletsheads has only been available in Dutch (or at least, mostly in Dutch). We’ve now just released our first episode in English. It’s packed with concrete tips from Eowyn Crisfield on how to plan for a bilingual child, an inspirational conversation with Ethiopian dad Dessu about the four languages spoken in his family, and chit-chat with two bilingual brothers about the language spoken by their cat. Listen to it via our website or find Kletsheads on your favourite podcast app.
