A little history:
Multilingual Café started in Ireland. It started with a small group of people meeting to talk about languages in 2010. It grew rapidly. The idea of Isabelle Barth, our founder, was to help families in the choices they are making in the bilingual and plurilingual education of their children.She started a blog: Multilingual Café - https://cafemultilingue.blogspot.com known by many.
We decided to have a more formal entity and moved Multilingual Café to France and set it up as a non-profit association, according the French law of 1901. The statutes were approved by the authorities in August 2018.
Our work is mostly for:
