Thursday, April 6 at 4:00pm to 6:00pm

What parents can and can’t do to help their children learn one, two, or more languages. In this interactive talk, Barbara Zurer Pearson will share research findings and use a case-study approach to explore alternative strategies and solutions for real-life situations.

Her talk will be followed by a panel on childhood bilingualism/bilingual parenting with community members. 

Barbara Zurer Pearson has been conducting research on bilingual child language for 30 years, first at the University of Miami and now as the Co-Director of the Language Acquisition Research Center at UMass-Amherst.  She collects stories and advice from parents all over the world who are raising multilingual children, and is author of Raising a Bilingual Child.
