For many multilingual families, it is a
challenge to keep the native language in the family. Mass media
and mainstream education promote only one language and do very little
to support other languages. As a result, the task of upholding traditional
linguistic values often falls on families. The easiest and most
natural way for families to promote the mother tongue among children
is by reading stories out loud or simply speaking in that language.
Lingvaerium Books provides multilingual and multicultural, family
oriented, accessible and educational products for people of all
ages. Our books and other multimedia products are thoughtfully created
or selected and are of the highest quality. They entertain while
teaching languages in a fun and simple way.
We put effort into avoiding a simple word-for-word translation
of books. The stories are told in different languages, using an
informal, conversational style. Parents or caregivers will truly
enjoy reading our books to their children.
Lingvaerium Books offers excellent material for foreign language
educators, as well as a helpful resource for English as a Second
Language (ESL) tutors.
