Bringing Up Bilingual, Biliterate and Bicultural Children
By Woo Yen Yen

For: Parents and Educators

Combining elements of a sharing session and interactive forum, this workshop prepares parents and teachers to seize the opportunities of bringing up bilingual, biliterate and bicultural children. Education professor, writer and parent Dr. Woo Yen Yen leads this discussion, first sharing observations from her time in Singapore, Taiwan and New York. She will then invite participants to share their own practices, launching a dialogue offering many takeaways for attendees.

This session will be conducted in Mandarin.
