Most immigrants will experience their children learning English faster than they do. They may also experience children replying in English while they speak their mother tongue to them. Why?
Because children want to fit in with their peers – desperately – and because they hear English so much more.

This very brief guide “Raising Children Bilingually” should answer the most important questions about raising children with two languages. The information sheet “Raising children with more than one language: Friends say we should!” along with a section of important Questions & Answers is a more detailed guide for parents about what to do!

The Saskatchewan German Council in partnership with the University of Saskatchewan is conducting research related to First and Second World War Internment Camps in Canada. We are looking for camp survivors, descendants, relatives, neighbors or friends who are interested in sharing their story related to the internment. Letters or diary entries are also of interest.

This research project aims to better understand the reasons for the imprisonment, the circumstances of the arrest, treatment in the camps, experiences of families left behind, and more.
