Attending bilingual kindergarten and schools
or participating in classes with regional or minority languages is not
obligatory, with the exception of Westfriesland. Therefore parents must
be encouraged to send their children to an institution that offers an
early education of those languages. The existing common arguments - published
by the European Bureau of Minority Languages - usually are too extensive.
Accordingly they cannot consider specific problems of the diverse language
groups. Another question is: How can information and promotion meetings
be created more appealing and effective with the support of modern media?
Pamphlets and information brochures to take home back the rational decision
making process. Additionally parents should be addressed on an emotional
level in order to create a positive tone among them. Again that has a
positive effect on the children learning the language.
