WORKSHOP IN SCHOOLS AND PRESCHOOLS

Do Eskimos really use 50 different words to say “snow”? 
In our language diversity and linguistic awareness workshops, children explore language and identity, migratory trajectories of languages, bilingualism, and they learn some fun language facts. In these workshops, children learn about how the different languages reflect different views of the world, and they develop an interest in other cultures and other languages. 

PARENT-TEACHER ASSOCIATIONS

We regularly organize talks and courses for parents of primary school children. 
Our most popular workshop is entitled “Multilingualism and multi-literacy in the primary school years: a workshop for families” 
Tailored workshops are available upon request
