    Hello all,

    We would like to invite you to this incredible FREE webinar panel organized by the Bi-Multilingual SIG. Join us! For more information see flyer attached.

    FAMILY LANGUAGE POLICIES AMONG QUEBEC-BASED PARENTS RAISING MULTILINGUAL INFANTS AND TODDLERS

    In addition to the French-speaking majority, the Canadian province of Quebec is home to a sizeable English-speaking minority community along with a multitude of heritage language speakers. Many parents in Quebec raise their children multilingually. In this webinar, we introduce the Quebec context and present findings from two studies of family language policy – i.e., language beliefs, language practices, and language management – among Quebec-based parents raising infants/toddlers aged 0-4 years with multiple languages in the home. In study 1, we used interviews and focus groups to gather qualitative data from 27 parents in Quebec's urban centre, Montreal; in study 2, we used a questionnaire (developed based on the findings from study 1) to elicit quantitative as well as qualitative data from more than 800 parents across the entire province. The discussion will shed light on some of the key factors involved in determining and upholding family language policies in multilingual families
