The Fédération des parents francophones de Colombie-Britannique (FPFCB) is pleased to introduce a range of resources and references about bilingual language development in young children living in minority settings. 

Information is grouped under different topic headings, including the optimal age for learning a second language, the importance of reading in language development, stages of language development, types of bilingualism, how best to correct your child’s errors, and a comparison between Francophone schools and French immersion schools.

We invite you to submit your questions and comments, and to share your experiences and stories in our "Questions and Stories" section so that we can continue to enrich this site!
