 About the Book 

Learning a second language early - before the age of 8 - has a multitude of academic, psychological and social benefits. And its fun! This book explains how children learn languages, and provides parents with ten top tools and techniques for creating a language-rich environment in the home. Even if you dont speak the language yourself, there are many ways you can introduce a new language - whether French, German, Spanish, Russian or Chinese - to your children in a playful, non-intrusive way, providing a foundation for language learning that will last throughout their lives.... a brilliant and important book, on three levels. It is a fascinating personal story, an invaluable guide to parents who want their children to have fun whilst acquiring essential bilingual skills and a marker for Government and LEAs as to how to avoid the disastrous slump in the numbers studying modern languages. - Dr Martin Stephen, High Master, St Pauls School, London
