About Me

on raising bilingual children-2

From here on my sofa (I always blog on my sofa…) in Oxfordshire, I welcome you from wherever you are reading. So far I have had readers from 166 countries and I am always happy to welcome more!

You may be here because you are already raising your children to be bilingual, you may be here because you are thinking about raising your children to be bilingual, or you may just have an interest in bilingualism. Whatever your reason, I hope you find here some answers to your questions, and some questions for your answers. I have an academic background in child bilingualism and bilingual education, and I am also raising three children, with three languages. My most popular seminar is “Raising Bilingual Children: Six building blocks for success” seminar, which i have delivered to thousands of families around the world. If you are interested in organising a seminar or having your organisation or school do so, please contact me for details.

My blog is an effort to combine my two worlds, incorporating both important theoretical aspects about bilingualism but also practical aspects, and even sometimes political aspects. With my company, Crisfield Educational Consulting, I do training for parents and teachers on bilingualism and bilingual education, and I also do research on integrating language learners in mainstream schools and classrooms.

So settle in on your sofa, preferably with a cup of tea, and read along. If you have a question that I haven’t already answered, or a clarification, please feel free to comment – I am happy to do blog posts inspired by reader questions, and I promise to answer yours too!
