English with Kirsty – episode 216
Sancha Moran on working with multiple languages and bringing children up multilingually
You can listen to episode 216 here:
Sancha and I got to know each other on LinkedIn and I was interested to find out more about her, her work, her family, and her story.
In this conversation, we talk about:
- Sancha’s first experiences working with English speakers
- Getting used to listening to a variety of accents once you start using a language in the real world
- Learning Korean as an adult
- Bringing children up bilingually
- Sancha’s journals for mothers and children.
This is how Sancha introduced herself:
“Mental and emotional health are by far what affects many parents / carers of people with disabilities, as we focus so much on caring for others, we tend to leave ourselves behind. I became a Thetahealer and I didn’t stop since, I became a Reiki Master, studying Psychology at NUI Maynooth, joined the Irish School of Shamanic Studies to become a Shaman healer, started reading Angel Cards and made my mission to help all parents and carers of special needs children/adults , to balance their mental and emotional health on the daily basis. Because I know how it feels, the challenges, the daily struggles, the upper management of home, therapies, doctors, children, and life itself. I have created a range of products and published over 7 books to help on their daily self-care routine. As we all know we can’t give from an empty cup, so we must fill ours first.
Do you relate to any of the things that we talked about today?
If you have children and you speak more than one language at home, what did you decide to do in terms of your approach to your children’s language learning? If you want to share, let us know in the comments or send me a message using the contact form.
