1. Raising bilingual children in Ireland
Parents of children who speak two or more languages are often full of questions. Will my child be able to manage with the school language? Should I keep using my mother tongue or should I stop? Are three languages too much for a child? How do we make sure that all languages develop? What are the best methods for raising bilingual children?
Join Dr Francesca La Morgia, director of Mother Tongues and expert in language development and bilingualism, for this interactive talk. There will be time for questions and discussion, and to share our experiences of parenting through multiple languages. Mother Tongues is a social enterprise working to promote multilingualism and intercultural dialogue in Ireland. They provide resources for families and educators in the areas of language development, bilingualism, and interculturalism. They also offer training and other networking events for professionals interested in fostering multilingualism in their setting. https://mothertongues.ie/
This event will be held in Lucan library.
