Bilingual Kidspot is an informative blog offering practical advice for parents seeking to raise bilingual or multilingual children. Created by an educator, and mother, it is a place offering inspiration, tools, and support; with strategies based on experience as a parent, and as a teacher of a foreign language to children.
Australian living in Italy with an Educational background in Social Science, and Teaching English as a Foreign Language.
After university, I took what was meant to be a year out to travel around Europe. However, I caught the travel bug and decided to explore more of the world, so I gained my ESL Certification, and started working with young children as an English teacher and Governess in schools, nurseries and within private families.
I travelled extensively, and worked with children in Switzerland, Germany, France, Russia, and Italy, experiencing first hand how easy it is for children to learn a foreign language, and how quickly they are able to pick it up at a young age.
Now, more than ten years later, I am based in Italy, married to my Italian husband and have two young children who are bilingual. Speaking English and Italian fluently, they are currently learning Spanish as a third language, with hope that in the future we can also introduce Mandarin.
With a passion for languages and children, I am constantly studying bilingualism. Having learned to speak Italian as an adult, I know how hard it can be to learn a language later in life. I believe that with the many benefits of being bilingual, that every child should have the chance to learn a second language.
I created Bilingual Kidspot
to share my knowledge and experience with other families who would like to raise bilingual kids.
