Bilingualism: a gift that lasts a lifetime

Mother Tongues has launched its first-ever national survey designed to discover how families in Ireland and Northern Ireland are raising bilingual/plurilingual babies and toddlers. Geared towards families with children aged 0 to 3, our goal is to reach thousands of families across the island to understand how we can best support them. The survey is available in English and Irish. The findings will be published in a report, which will be accessible on our website and disseminated nationwide.
