Websites for Bilingual/Multilingual Families

These websites may support families who are raising bilingual/multilingual children.

The Importance of Home Language Series
This series of handouts provides basic information on topics related to children learning two or more languages. The handouts emphasize the benefits of being bilingual, the importance of maintaining home language, and the value of becoming fully bilingual.

Colorin Colorado
This website has many resources for multilingual families, particularly information about how to support your child’s language and reading development.

Multilingual Families
This website offers parent guides (in various languages) on reasons for raising a child as multilingual and how to raise a multilingual child.  The “Repository” has links to resources like articles, studies and books to learn more about multilingualism.

Home Language Resources
This page is meant to help parents find books, music and other materials to make family bilingualism easier and more fun. Some are sorted by language and are found on their own pages.

Multilingual Living
Multilingual Living is a place where parents raising children in more than one language and culture can find inspiration, tools, advice, wisdom and support!”
