Mother Language Program

“The research is very clear about the importance of bilingual children’s mother tongue for their overall personal and educational development.... Children’s knowledge and skills transfer across languages from the mother tongue they have learned in the home to the school language.”

- Dr. Jim Cummins, professor at the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education
