    The Success after the Silence

    The Success after the Silence

    When trying to raise her children to be bilingual proved to be a challenge, Corrie Wiik realized it was the method of how she was teaching her children Spanish that wasn’t working. Once she made some changes she started to notice a different outcome.


    In today’s Building Bilingual Families Podcast, we interview Corrie about finding success in the right teachings and what happens after a “silent period.” Every child experiences the silent period as they absorb their parents native language before they begin to speak. Corrie explains that learning a second language is no different.
