February 21st is the United Nations International Mother Language day, a day to promote awareness of linguistic and cultural diversity and to encourage multilingualism. In celebration of this day, ISB hosted the first of our annual “Raising Multilinguals” parent engagement sessions that evening.
The first workshop covered reasons to maintain native language; classes and resources available at ISB; and the importance of a family language plan. The second workshop, on March 28, will cover how families can promote literacy and rich conversation in daily life, in support of the family language plan.
To see some of the languages spoken at ISB over the years check out our video:
