Talks and courses on bilingualism

We visit companies in person and virtually for lunchtime sessions and short courses for families working in the company who raise bilingual children. Our friendly and informative sessions cover a range of topics, from bilingualism in the family, to choosing a language strategy to how to deal with a new language for children of families who have relocated. 

We tailor the sessions and the learning outcomes to the needs of each group.

Dr Francesca La Morgia from Mother Tongues held a talk at LinkedIn in June about raising bi-lingual children. Very fitting as there are more than 30 languages spoken in our Dublin office! As a member of the "Parents at LinkedIn" employee group I was lucky to get invited. I got some great tips on raising my 17 month old boy with German whilst living in Ireland, and it also helped me manage expectations in terms of what is realistic at what age and what is not. He is now pointing out animals in German - I couldn't be happier.

I got a lot out of the Mother Tongues talk that Dr. La Morgia gave, it was so useful to hear from someone who studies the challenges I have had raising children bilingually. Even hearing other parents ask similar questions was reassuring. The Language Explorers book is also delightful and my children loved going through it with us 🙂
