Children are back to school and we are very excited to be able to return to hosting face-to-face events for our community at our school.
In this regard we are delighted to invite you to an insightful talk on bilingualism, in conversation with Dr Roberto Filippi, Associate Professor in the Department of Psychology and Human Development at University College London, Institute of Education and Director of the Multilanguage & Cognition Lab at UCL.
The importance of bilingual education: An investment in our children’s future
SIAL.school, 154 – 156 Holland Park Avenue, London W11 4UH
1st October 2021, 5:30-7:00PM BST
In this talk Dr Filippi will explain the difference between various types of bilingualism and multilingualism and how learning two or more languages may enrich our brain.
He will then focus on bilingual education, and will cover some of the recent scientific findings in this field.
The presentation will be followed by a Q&A session.
Participation at the event is free of charge, but registration is compulsory.
Registration for the online talk with Dr Filippi is now closed.
Our school is committed to supporting parents and carers on the fascinating journey of raising bilingual/multilingual children.
