How to raise multilingual children with fun & ease

There are many reasons and stories of why children of intercultural families are raised with more than one language. Often, parents already bring different languages into the mix. Or our children need or want to learn a new language when moving to a third country.

Is that the case in your family as well?
And how much have you thought about the strategy that suits your family before getting started?
Are you integrating all the languages into your house intentionally, or is it just happening?

Bettina Gruber, PhD in linguistics and mother of three trilingual children, made it her mission to bring more fun & ease into parenting multilingual children.

She supports global families to remove stress and unrealistic expectations from the daily life of multilingual families. In our conversation of the first Happy Abroad Summit 2020, we talked about setting clear and realistic goals for childrenโ€™s language acquisition, the importance of good relationships to languages and to people speaking these languages, and practical ways to support your children in the process of acquiring multiple languages simultaneously. With joy & ease.

Up to now, Bettina has mostly worked in German. Meaning: her group programs, and general offers were available only to German speakers. For support in English, she only had the option of 1:1 work.

She is right now launching her first English group program: What to expect when you’re raising a multilingual child.ย
