Lecture on Multilingualism
Tuesday 12 January 2021 -
19:30 to 21:00

EUNIC Netherlands, EUNIC Netherlands, the European Commission Representation in the Netherlands and OBA Amsterdam are working in partnership to deliver a Series of Lectures on Multilingualism. The first lecture will be held on 12 January 2021 and will deal with the topic “Raising a bilingual child with success”.

If you’re raising a bilingual child, you no doubt get to hear advice from many different people and places, from friends and neighbours to the consultatiebureau and teachers. Which advice should you follow and which can you better ignore?

Dr. Sharon Unsworth will give tips and tricks based on the latest research findings to help your child become a successful bilingual. She will talk about what success means, what makes bilingualism so special, and why at the same time it’s also completely normal. Sharon is language scientist at Radboud University in Nijmegen, mother of two bilingual children, and host of Kletsheads, the podcast about bilingual children for parents, teachers and speech language therapists. The lecture will be held online at 19:30 on Tuesday 12 January. More information can be found on the EUNIC website and OBA website
