Bilingualism and parenting
It's an important choice: which school system do you send your child through if you want him or her to have the best possible foundation for both English and French? Over the past week, we have heard many voices from the front lines of language education: from the schoolyard to the classroom. But the most important decision about language is likely made at the kitchen table, as parents decide the best options for their children.
We hear from parents who have a variety of options and have made different choices. Francis Brault, Chantal Jura, Sylvestre Pinette and Dolores del Rio share their experiences with us. We begin with Francis.
