Dr Joanna Kołak

Supporting families in multilingual upbringing.

I am a psychologist and a doctor of social sciences. For ten years, my area of research has been linguistic and cognitive development of bilingual and multilingual children. I also conduct research on children’s development in the world of digital media. I work as a Lecturer in Language Development at UCL’s Institute of Education in London.

I am the author of an e-book for parents and specialists ‘Bilingual and multilingual development. 50 questions and answers’ in which I combine the knowledge gained during ten years of scientific work with my experience from more than eight years of working with families.

As part of my professional activity, I run individual consultations for parents of multilingual children living in different countries. I run online consultations in Polish and English. I help parents choose a strategy for bilingual upbringing, I suggest possible solutions to current problems and I advise them on when and how to introduce another language.
