KEEP THIS KEY POINT CLEARLY IN MIND
Yes, raising a bilingual or multilingual child may be like climbing a mountain, but it’s also true that this is a mountain that has no peak at all.
For this special mountain of ours, no matter how high we might climb, we can always climb higher.
In other words, language acquisition should be viewed as a continuum from absolute zero at one end (no ability at all in that language) to endless advancement as this continuum stretches on forever since no one can possibly be “fully fluent” in any language.
After all, even at the highest levels of proficiency in our native languages, there will always be words or expressions that are unfamiliar to us, particularly specialized terms from numerous fields.
For instance, the largest dictionary in English—the Second Edition of the 20-volume Oxford English Dictionary—contains 171,476 words in current use, as well as 47,156 obsolete words. But the average English-speaking adult has a passive understanding of “only” about 40,000 words and an active vocabulary of around 20,000 words. So, even though I’ve been an English speaker for 60 years, it’s not hard to see why I’ll still be coming across unfamiliar words for the rest of my life!
THE MISSION OF BILINGUAL SUPERKIDS
The mission of my coaching program, then, is to help you climb with your child as high as you possibly can over the day-to-day course of the childhood years.
There may be no end point to language development, no peak to this mountain, but with my ongoing guidance and support, you can feel confident that you and your child will climb to very rewarding heights together and enjoy the journey more fully along the way.
This is the potential, and the promise, of Bilingual SuperKids.
