For parents

Mother Tongues inspire parents to use simple techniques to make sure their children can successfully develop two or more languages. We do this by providing information, support and resources and by inviting families to attend our creative multilingual programme Language Explorers.

Mother Tongues offer bespoke family language consultations to support parents in deciding on a language strategy, to find out about specific techniques to boost language skills, and to address challenges. 

If the information on our website does not answer all your questions and you would like to delve deeper or design a solution to suit your family needs, you can request a consultation here.  

Find families with young children who speak your language and connect with many other families from around the world who live in your local area.

In today’s world most children speak two or more languages. But can all children become bilingual? What can parents do to support them? Are there techniques that work and others that cause problems? These and other questions are quite common among parents who deal with bilingualism in their family. This is why Mother Tongues offers a range of membership packages.

The Language Explorers workshops have a strong focus on language development, parent-child communication and literacy and provide a high-quality creative experience for parents and their children based on storytelling, drama, visual arts and music.
