Raising Multilingual Children – ESRC Festival of Social Science

09/11/2017, 18:00 - 19:30

Are you raising your children to speak more than one language? Are you interested in bilingualism and multilingualism generally? This seminar discusses parents’ experiences of using Welsh and other languages (for example Arabic or Polish) with their children. It includes summaries of research on the use of Welsh in families and research on trilingual families. We’ll also invite parents to share their own strategies for using minority languages with children in the home.

Everyone is welcome and there will be light refreshments. The event is being held in Welsh and English and simultaneous translation into English will be available.

The event promotes two social science research projects; one into the use of Welsh within families and one ongoing PhD project into trilingual families in Finland and Wales. It’s an opportunity to discuss the strategies parents use when raising multilingual children and what can help or hinder their success.
