Multilingual language acquisition: what is multilingualism? The myths, practical advice
Wednesday, 22 June, 7pm via Zoom

Multilingual language acquisitionFor everyone but particularly for those parents who have been faced with conflicting advice about how to best help their multilingual children

This talk will give you an introduction to multilingualism – what is it, what says the research? How can you help your child with the languages? It will focus on the myths – when do you actually need to worry?

There will be room for your own questions.

The Swede Dr. Monica Bravo Granström is the Managing Director of the Akademie für wissenschaftliche Weiterbildung (Continuing Education) at the University of Education Weingarten in Southern Germany. As a language activist, she works in several ways for multilingualism, e.g. as: researcher (PhD), lecturer on multilingualism, author of the handbook “I love svenska” (I love Swedish, 2013) for Swedish parents raising their children abroad, and Senior Advisor SMUL (Svenska som modersmål utomlands”)… She is also mother of two multilingual children (Swedish, German, Spanish, English).
