As the name implies, bilingual books are books written in two different languages. These are not commonly translated word for word, but the story or a sentence to give them more meaning. If they are well translated, they can be a very valuable resource for parents, children, and teachers.
In IdealSchool, we know the importance of Dual Language, which is why we have decided to implement this type of education to our students, in addition to providing the best books in Dual Language. Here are some tips on bilingual books, which will help both parents and teachers.
How to use bilingual books with children?
Many studies prove that children who practice what they study at home tend to improve their academic performance, even when it comes to languages, it is good to reinforce learning at home. Many children often improve their academic performance when parents are involved in their education, whether they read, communicate or participate in homework assigned to the home, in addition to language activities, as children feel more comfortable.
To improve this performance, we can count on bilingual books, since these are a great resource for learning two different languages. They also offer teachers the opportunity to teach their students in the home language and reinforce the language of the school. They are also a tool to improve the participation of parents in this teaching.
These bilingual books can also be interactive, as many of them contain drawings for coloring, which makes teaching much more fun, and will also help the overall development of language, and will not hamper their school performance.
