How do intercultural children acquire skills to verbalise?
Intercultural children hear (and speak) two different languages during language acquisition. But, the world’s languages differ in many ways. Thus, not every language combination has to be equally easy to learn.
How do intercultural children have conversations?
Conversations with other people can be challenging. If we cannot assess what needs and experiences our conversation partner has, it is difficult for us to find the right words and means. Intercultural children often face this challenge because linguistic means differ between languages and cultures.
How do intercultural children identify themselves?
Finding our own self is a long process. We are guided by important caregivers and friends, but also by all the people we meet. Intercultural children face the task of having to be competent in two cultures and finding their own identity in between.
