Lecture of Bilingualism by Soile Pietikainen, PhD in the Finnish School of Kingston 21.1.2017
Soile Pietikainen, PhD in bilingualism will be giving her 'bilingual cake'
talk at the school on the 21 January from 10:15-11:30 ( in a classroom upstairs).
This is the first part of her two part talk, second part to follow later in the spring.
Soile really knows her subject and is an inspirational speaker.
Please come along to learn more about how we can manage better the challenges
facing bilingual families.
For the pupils the classes will take place as normal but the smaller children
will have their break in their classrooms so that both parents can come
along to listen to Soile.
The talk costs £5/person
