As a lifelong multilingual and linguist, I know about all the advantages of speaking, reading and writing multiple languages, and that although transmitting our languages to our children seems simple, it is not easy. Especially when we raise our children abroad, in an environment where our home languages are not supported by the broader society, parents and ideally schools need to go an extra mile.

 

I promote the benefits of multilingualism by bridging the gap between research and practice, and I support families maintain their languages and dialects, and transmit their culture, whilst embracing new ones.

A language and culture friendly environment where our children can thrive starts at home, in the family. 

 

 

 

I regularly hold talks and organize trainings and webinars at schools, companies, health care centers, at community events, and for parent groups.
I also offer courses for parents who want to get more confident in raising their children with multiple languages.

 

As an Independent Language Consultant,

 

  • always put the child's and family's interests and needs first!

 

  • advise parents about best practices when raising children with multiple languages by translating scientific findings into practice and actionable steps, and by focussing primarily on the family's and child's needs

 

  • design a family tailored language plan for the family that helps to maintain and improve the home languages whilst fostering also the community language

 

  • mediate between parents and teachers and health care professionals, if necessary
