“I can’t tell you what it has meant to me to connect with others that feel as passionately about bilingualism as I do. I used to feel so alone and restricted in my resources and abilities. Now, I am sure that I am not crazy to be doing this and that help is only a few clicks away!” – Angelica

 Your have already started your language journey but it is not going as well as you had hoped…

➢ Your are not finding the language resources that you need in your target language to keep your kids learning and engaged…

 You are the only one in your circle of friends raising bilingual kids!

Raising bilingual kids can feel so daunting at times.

But teaching kids a language is one of the greatest gifts you could give them!

THAT’S WHAT INSPIRED ME TO BUILD THIS COMMUNITY!

Hey there, I’m Marianna Du Bosq and like you, I am raising bilingual kids!

For years, I kept meeting good families, just like yours, who had set out with the best intentions to raise bilingual children but eventually gave up on the journey because it isn’t always easy.

These stories broke my heart.

The benefits to being bilingual are endless!  No matter how tough it may be to get there, I want people to get the help they need to reach their multilingual goals.

That’s what led me to create the Bilingual Avenue Members’ Club to help other families raise happy and fluent bilingual kids in English and Spanish! 

I have been leveraging my experience as a bilingual educator, language learner and multilingual parent to help families around the world reach their bilingual goals.

I can’t wait to help you too!

I want your family to experience the joy that bilingualism can bring to your home. It’s possible, but only if you start your journey!

You are NOT alone!

Get started today!  -Marianna

INTRODUCING THE BILINGUAL AVENUE MEMBERS’ CLUB

The Bilingual Avenue Members’ Club is a membership and your go to resource on what to do, how to do it and what to expect when raising YOUR bilingual children!

This is a community of like-minded bilingual parents complete with the strategies you need to teach your kids another language while holding you accountable on your family’s language journey. 

THE MEMBERS’ CLUB WILL HELP YOU TO:

Create a language plan that gives you the clarity to move forward on your family’s language journey

Connect and get support from other bilingual parents who understand exactly what you are going through

Teach your child to read in Spanish with a step by step reading program with fun & easy lessons!

Eliminate the guesswork through personalized coaching where you are struggling

Develop bilingual goals and keep them top of mind with accountability from the community

Implement language strategies tailored to the needs of YOUR kids so you can enjoy the journey! 

Bilingual Avenue was the ultimate building block for our family’s bilingual journey after many years of ‘waiting for the right time’.

As a mother to a two and six year old, I was encouraged to think carefully about reasons I wanted my daughters to be bilingual which helped me carry on when I hit those inevitable roadblocks.   I was provided ideas (in the form of plans, information, fun age-appropriate games and a members forum) to expose my daughters to Spanish and to create the need to use Spanish in every day life.

The ongoing support and guidance from Marianna was invaluable. Being a non-native Spanish speaker while raising bilingual kids at the same time is daunting.

Bilingual Avenue offered me the opportunity and safe space to give it a go and experience both the success and learning opportunities with other parents around the world.”

They will take you 15 minutes or less to do with your child so you can fit them in the nooks and crannies of your day!

phonological awareness

The program starts off teaching your little ones to identify oral units such as syllables. Research has shown that struggling readers are not as sensitive to the sounds of spoken words. Therefore, our reading curriculum ensures that kids have a strong foundation in phonological awareness from the start

phonemes

The program breaks down individual phonemes one by one so that your bilingual child can learn the letter sounds in a fun way.  There are chants and objects associated with each phoneme so that kids can learn them with ease while building their vocabulary in Spanish

HANDWRITING

Develop handwriting skills to learn consistent letter formation and build a strong transition into writing in Spanish! The program includes instruction on proper letter strokes and provides independent practice opportunities 

syllable blending

Syllables are an essential element of learning to read in Spanish. This program is tailored to the unique needs of Spanish readers which is why it spends a significant amount of time on syllable blending instruction.

review

Research shows that children need regular and active interactions with print to become strong readers which is why our program reviews the information presented to your child frequently. The review lessons are interactive and engaging. Your child will LOVE review day!

Our reading program enhances children’s exposure to reading opportunities from the beginning. After your child has learned the first FOUR syllables, they will be stringing words together and READING!
