UCL BiLingo Events

We have held many events over the last couple of years thanks to our funding from UCL Grand Challenges. It has been really interesting to meet so many teachers and parents across London and to share experiences of raising bilingual and multilingual children.

Multilingual Families

A workshop for parents at the Greek Independent School of Finchley.

The event was well-attended and many interesting questions about raising multilingual children were raised.
