University of Liverpool and Plymouth University conducting research into bilingual toddler development.
Michele Gallen of the University of Liverpool is working in partnership with Plymouth University on a Bilingual Toddler Study.
She is now looking for families with a child or children under the age of 2 years who are being brought up in a bilingual environment.
If you would like to get involved with the study please go to the website https://www.psy.plymouth.ac.uk/UKBilingualToddlers.

“If you’re looking for somewhere to take your child Jo Jingles could be the ideal club to join…The classes seem to install confidence in the children to perform by themselves as well as to participate in group activities. However classes are not purely music orientated, they have an educational slant too….Classes are small which keeps the environment informal and friendly, and each session is well structured, moving it along at a fairly swift pace. The enthusiasm of the teacher quickly rubs off on the children and most seem eager to join in.”
