Mother Tongues is a social enterprise working to promote multilingualism and intercultural dialogue in Ireland.
After 10 years of academic teaching and research on bilingualism, Dr Francesca La Morgia decided it was time to share positive and encouraging messages about bilingualism with parents and with people working with young children.
In 2018 she founded Mother Tongues, the first social enterprise in Ireland to employ a creative arts-based approach to empowering parents and children to embrace their mother tongue.
Our mission is to empower bilingual children through creativity and the arts
so they can grow up confident in their linguistic and cultural identity.
