Raising multilingual children through OPOL and CLAP
In this talk, Tetsu will discuss how he takes two simple concepts, OPOL (One Parent/Person One Language) and CLAP (Contextual Language Acquisition Philosophy), to raise multilingual children. The importance of creating an optimal environment and starting as early as possible are covered, as well as his experience with au pairs as a way to introduce languages not normally accessible easily.
