Bilingualism and a love for reading are great gifts that we can each give our children. The Asian Festival of Children’s Content (AFCC), which promotes quality Asian literary content, is fast approaching with their exciting yearly event. This May, the AFCC invites you and your children to partake in their diverse range of fun workshops, conferences, master classes and free public events.
Here are our favourites from the programme…The Parents Forum is jam-packed full of enriching talks about why nurturing early learning and bilingualism is so important and what we can do to foster it in our households. From lessons on engaging storytelling to teaching reading and writing using motor skills, there’s something there for everyone. If your kids are aged 6-12, feel free to bring them along too for some creative activities. Sunday 26th May, 10am – 5pm Cost: $100
