Since 2020 we interview experts in the field of raising children with multiple languages and maintaining languages across the lifespan at the live broadcast  Raising Multilinguals LIVE.
Through our interviews with experts in the field our aim is to spread information on raising multilingual children and bridge between research and practice.



Our VISION is to give everyone access to fact-based, practical informaiton on raising bilingual and multilingual children.


Our MISSION is that children across the world thrive through languages. By interviewing experts and experienced people in the field of bilingualism and multilingualism, our LIVE platform provides parents, educators, other professionals and anyone interested in the topic with relevant advice and hands-on tips on how to raise children in more than one language.


By covering topics ranging from common family language strategies, through insights on the neuroscience of languages and all the way to multilingualism in formal education, Raising Multilinguals LIVE strives to bring you to the cutting edge on this subject, so that you can find the best language strategies for your family.
