Can Your Child Speak Your Mother’s Language?

Can your child greet your mother in her first language? There is something uniquely special about watching your child connect with grandparents in their native language.

In today’s global world, children may often grow up isolated or out of touch from the historical roots and cultural backgrounds that make their grandparents and parents who they are. But it doesn’t have to be this way. Stepping back into speaking your mother tongue can be an exciting and nostalgic journey for you and your child. Preserving your heritage through the legacy of your child is a beautiful gift only you can give them.

Now more than ever, this Mother’s Day should bring us back to the guiding principles of compassion and acceptance that we want to live on in our world. Language is a powerful bridge that allows us to connect with. Though we may be physically isolated from grandparents and other loved ones this Mother’s Day, thankfully today’s technology makes it easy to connect with a phone or video call. Give your mom the gift of a welcoming “hello” or “I love you” in her language. It will be sure to brighten her day and you will have so much fun teaching your child in the process.

Your child’s language learning adventure doesn’t have to stop there. There are so many benefits to raising a bilingual child from improved cognitive development to a more diverse cultural perspective. We get why you would want to learn more.

One of the best ways to teach a child is to expose them to the language as much as possible. Talking, reading, and singing to your child are great ways to foster language development. At Shoonya, we’ve created fun and interactive culturally rich apps to help out along the way!
