Exploring Foreign Languages with Braille

I recently came across this interesting article written by a dad in Los Angeles, Eric Vasiliauskas, who wanted to share his Lithuanian culture with his blind son: “Enriching Your Blind Child’s Life via Foreign Language Braille”. Literacy and braille are so very important and this site brings into focus how families can bring foreign language into braille for their children.

What do you think, have you tried introducing your child to a foreign language in braille? I would love to hear about your experiences.

By the way, I just learned that AFB’s Braille Bug® site has added a good introductory article about foreign language braille, as well articles about music braille and the Nemeth code, which is used for math.
