8 Tips for Encouraging Bilingualism in Different Personality Types

8 Tips for Encouraging Bilingualism in Different Personality Types | Spanish for Homeschooling | Scoop.it
Introverted and extroverted children require different approaches for learning the minority language. Here are eight tips for raising bilingual introverts and extroverts.
Sonja Hartemink e-learning Spanish's insight:

It wasn’t until she did grow that I realized that children are not copies of their parents and actually come to this world with inborn characteristics. Naïvely I had thought I was raising someone like me, in other words, an extrovert. Only after several years and many frustrating experiences for both of us, I came across a great book on personalities by Florence Littauer called “Personality Plus for Parents.” It clearly showed that Emma was an introvert, and therefore not motivated by the same things as someone with my personality type. I still remember the relief I felt when I realized, page by page, that Emma didn’t reject me as a parent when she didn’t respond to my attempts to have “fun quality time” together. Nor could or should I try to remake her into an extrovert. It was up to me to adjust my language activities to her personality type, for starters by respecting her need for privacy and dislike for social situations. Just as I started to understand what made Emma tick, our second daughter, Sara, was born. As we quickly found out, she was just as extroverted as I am—and then some!

Will, 28, said he liked homeschooling and didn’t regret being homeschooled. He said:

“Homeschooling made me a more independent thinker. Homeschooling was also more interesting. I studied a better variety of topics.

“Because I was involved in skating, I still had a social presence. I do think homeschoolers need to be involved in some sort of social activity for their kids.”

Christina, 23, also said she liked homeschooling and didn’t regret being homeschooled. She said:

“I really liked that I was able to graduate two years early. That meant that I was able to graduate from college at age 19, which is extremely rare.

“I loved the freedom of being able to do my schoolwork at different times of the day so that I could keep up my busy schedule of ballet, skating, workouts, and karate.

“Being homeschooled also meant that I didn’t have to spend lots of extra time on homework and inessentials. Instead, I was able to focus and spend more time on what was important for me to learn.

“I enjoyed being taught by my mom. She’s an excellent teacher, and it was always nice to be around her more.

“Homeschooling also helped me be more independent as I grew older and was able to take more responsibility for my studies.”

Sonja Hartemink e-learning Spanish's insight:

Certainly knowing ourselves better helps us steer our homeschooling style to capitalize on our strengths and minimize our weaknesses.

 

Since I’m most familiar with the introverted parent’s perspective–let’s start today with some thoughts about homeschooling as an introvert. Introverts are not backwards, insecure, or unsociable. We simply fuel ourselves through thoughts, ideas, and time alone. When tanked up and ready to go, we can enjoy people time as much as anyone else. But when we have nothing but people time, our reserves begin to dwindle, which leads to burnout.

 

“So stay true to your own nature. If you like to do things in a slow and steady way, don’t let others make you feel as if you have to race. If you enjoy depth, don’t force yourself to seek breadth. If you prefer single-tasking to multi-tasking, stick to your guns. Don’t think of introversion as something that needs to be cured.” - See more at: http://simplehomeschool.net/introvert/#more-22959

"The benefits of being bilingual are numerous. I’ve gone through a lot of them in various places on this site, but I wanted to have one post that consolidated all of them. I will continuously update this post as I find more benefits and as new research is uncovered on the benefits of being bilingual. Or multilingual".
