Our actions are towards primary and secondary school teachers, as well as educators, who would like to develop their knowledge on the language development of children who are growing with more than one language and one culture.
We are offering trainings to companies which are wishing to develop a multilingual atmosphere in their businesses.
Our trainings are also for health professionals who are working with bilingual and plurilingual families, so that we can help them accompany those families in their choices for an plurilingual education.
The trainings of Multilingual Cafe are for all those who are working in places where linguistic diversity can be seen; teachers, educators, trainers, carers, general practitioners, speech therapists, health professionals...
