Multilingual and bilingual children: Q&As

Raising multilingual kids is more than language learning

Who we are

Diogo and Kristin are parents of a multilingual child.He is Portuguese and she is German, they met in Australia, lived in Spain, and now reside in the UK.With a close link to family living in Germany and Portugal, it is important for them that their child learns their mother tongues so they can speak with grandparents, uncles, aunts, and cousins that do not speak English.And they believe this will help their child better absorb their parents' cultural background.

Why we do this

Diogo and Kristin realised from early on, that there was a shortage of trilingual books on the market, so they decided to research, write books, develop other ideas and help other families in the same situation.This is a website for all those multicultural families facing the same challenges or interested in getting those languages across to their children from early on.
