October is Bilingual Child Month. It’s a time to celebrate the linguistic and cultural diversity among us. This celebration resonates with parents who are on the journey in passing on their heritage languages to their children, and those who are committed to providing their kids the opportunity to acquire a world language through bilingual or immersion schools, homeschools, and bilingual/multilingual resources. As technology draws communities closer, celebrating Bilingual Child Month is a step towards connecting cultures in our society.
