is an organization that aims to raise awareness of the benefits and challenges associated with bilingualism.
We provide advice and support for parents, education professionals, health care professionals,
businesses and for anyone working in multilingual environments.
Since Mother Tongues was founded in 2017 we have involved more than 1000 people in our educational and creative programmes in over 20 different languages.
In 2018 we started a very exciting programme to teach primary school children about the languages of the world, and we organised the Mother Tongues Festival, which was the first of its kind on the Irish cultural scene.
Meet the team!
We are an international team of people with expertise in the areas of linguistics, language development, teaching, language impairment and speech and language therapy, business and community development.
We are all passionate about education, multilingualism and multiculturalism, and we believe in the importance of celebrating Ireland’s rich linguistic tapestry.
We are keen to reach out to as many people as possible. If you have an idea or a project in mind, and you would like to discuss it with one of us, do not hesitate to get in touch.
