"This course was super encouraging to me as a mom who is trying to create a language environment for my toddler in my second language (Mandarin) that few people in my own community speak. I was unconfident about my ability to pass on the small amount that I know without much support from other speakers. I thought I was going to teach my son all the wrong things and ruin him in both languages by switching back and forth all the time! Elaine explained really clearly how my son’s brain works and what he needs most from his language nurturer, whomever they may be. We’re still going strong as a bilingual household and my son just started responding to me in Mandarin a few days ago! I cried tears of joy. 100% recommend this course."
