On this episode of Bilingual Avenue, I provide advice to a mother who is concerned that she may have waited too long to teach her children Italian.  Her children are 6 and 11 and although they are showing interest in learning the language, she is looking for suggestions on how to pass on the language to them.  I give her some tips on how to motivate older children and find age appropriate content for them.
