November 7, 2023 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm


Gain theoretical insights and practical strategies in our interactive Parent Workshop and kickstart your unique family language journey!

Language and its development is one of the central topics in parenting. How families allocate and manage language(s) within their own environment can significantly impact a child’s educational and cognitive development as well as their overall well-being.

Join us for a 90-minute interactive, theory-into-practice workshop, in which we will explore how children navigate growing up with more than one language and equip parents with the knowledge and tools to create a nurturing environment where their chosen languages can flourish.

Every family is unique and so is their language journey, which is why tailoring your approach to meet your family’s specific language needs is essential. Our workshop is designed to empower you with actionable strategies and the latest scientific insights, bridging the gap between theory and real-life application. It will further help you foster effective communication, nurture your child’s linguistic heritage and create a harmonious multilingual environment.

Throughout this engaging session, we will explore a diverse range of essential topics that are vital for parents raising multilingual children, such as:

  • Understanding is bi-/multilingualism – You will get insights into what it means and why it’s important.
  • Debunking common myths and sharing facts.
  • Family Language Planning – Discover how to set achievable language goals and create a solid foundation.
  • Choosing a school.
  • Supporting your goals.
  • Tackling learning challenges.
  • Supporting home language literacy.
  • Promoting your child’s well-being – Understand the profound impact of multilingualism on your child’s overall well-being.

Our workshop offers a balanced blend of theoretical knowledge and practical guidance, drawing from the latest scientific research and best practices. With the added insights of our presenters, Maria Potvin and Daphne Vlachojannis, both experienced professionals and moms to multilingual children, you’ll have the opportunity to gain a richer understanding of raising multilingual children.

Whether you’re a seasoned multilingual family or just beginning your journey, this workshop will provide you with valuable insights and strategies to enrich your child’s language development.

We are looking forward to welcoming you and embarking on this exciting journey together!
