Supporting Our Youngest English Language Learner: Strategies for Working with Children ELL Module 4


Event Description

Very young children from birth to age three are rapid learners of language. If children of this age group are exposed to more than one language, how is their language development impacted? Recent research has found that there are many benefits for very young children in learning two or more languages. Children exposed to more than one language are often called dual language learners and the "code switching" they learn through the learning process can help strengthen executive brain function. Professionals working with dual language learners do not themselves have to speak other languages to assist children's multiple language development. Come to this module to discover easy strategies you can put into place to support these very young English language learners. This is the fourth module in the English Language Learners series. It is suggested that participants take Module 1, 2, or 3 before Modules 4 or 5.
