As parents, we often rack our brains over raising a bilingual. Using Russian with our child only in everyday life is not enough to turn them into a well-balanced bilingual. How do you teach your child proper Russian in an English-speaking environment? How do you get them to speak and to be carried away with something interesting? I’d like to add one more recipe to all those you probably already know.
It’s a well-known fact that children, and oftentimes even adults, learn through playing. Playing is what helps them master social roles, display creativity and, as a result, develop their language skills. Puppet theater is not just a good way to entertain your child, but also to draw them into a conversation!
