Who we are

Being multilingual brings many advantages – to the children, to our community, to our economy. However in many cases due to a lack of information, multilingual parents choose to speak to their children in English. Britain remains a very monolingual country where people speaking only one language is regarded as normal.

WFBG aims to support families with bilingual children. Drop-in and play session, guest speakers and other events are all open to members and free to anyone interested in multilingual issues.
