It was very interesting to hear how other people in same situation deal with certain things.
The best thing was finding out that most intercultural couples face similar issues and wonders. I learnt that the fathers play a very big part in the child´s language skills and learning.
The best thing was meeting other parents to be and knowing we are not alone in this. Good to learn from different experiences and different backgrounds.
Online Course (Self-study Material)
A number of topics that intercultural families have to deal with, such as combining different cultures, bi-/multilingualism and child’s language development will be discussed, as well as the very crux of the concept. The course will take into account expert opinion on the subject, as well as first-hand accounts and information from people who are parents of intercultural families themselves.
Face-to-face Meetings and Bilingualism Workshop
The face-to-face family meeting gives you the opportunity to meet other intercultural couples in a same life situation and share thoughts and experiences about intercultural family life and parenthood. Please note, that the meeting is a peer family meeting and doesn't include birth training or information about how to take care of a newborn baby.
In the bilingulism workshop you get advice on how to support the bi-/multilingualism of your child and a chance to change ideas with other parents.
