Brilliant Bilingualism with Guest Trainer Dr Rose Drury

March 25 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm GMT

Free

Stronger Practice Hub Event

The webinar will explore young bilingual children’s use of first language(s) and learning of a new language in the Early Years. The advantages of growing up learning more than one language will be discussed, and strategies will be developed for fostering children’s bilingualism and supporting and assessing the learning of English. It will help make links with current policy guidance and discuss how to put this into practice with bilingual children and their families to develop strategies for supporting bilingual children’s learning.

Dr Rose Drury is an Early Years Education Consultant and Honorary Associate at The Open University. She has 20 years of experience working with undergraduate, postgraduate and doctoral students and with practitioners in early years settings. She is frequently asked to speak at conferences on supporting multilingualism in the early years because of her recognised expertise in the field and she has published a book ‘Young bilingual learners at home and at school’ (Trentham). She has also worked with parent groups in a variety of settings.
