Welcome to the September installment of the Multilingual Blogging Carnival! I’m glad to be hosting this month, after Perogies & Gyoza did a wonderful job last month putting our stories together.
For more information about the Multilingual Blogging Carnival, or to sign up as a host or participant, please check out the wonderful organizer of it all, Piri-Piri Lexicon!
I picked for a theme this month “Music and Language” – how do you use music in your kids’ language journey? We always have music going in our house, and it is so fun to hear the kids sing in Afrikaans, English, Spanish! I got some fun responses, I hope you’ll enjoy reading them as much as I did!
Bringing Up Baby Bilingual reminds us that music is a great way to learn languages, for children and adults! She also lists 7 great reasons why you should sing to learn a new language: this is definitely new inspiration for me in my language journey!
Piri-Piri Lexicon did an amazing job to tell us about the research findings why music is good for language learning. Definitely a good reminder of why it is good for us to listen to lots of music!
The Head of the Heard tells us about the music in their family: maybe more Wheels on the Bus than their musical heritage from Brazil and Britain right now, but it sounds like they are off to a good start with bed time songs.
Lastly, I share my tips to use music to help your kids’ language learning, as we sing our way to 3 languages!
Enjoy reading, listening, and singing along, and post some comments on each other’s blogs so that we can build our community!
