PEaCH

Preserving and promoting Europe’s cultural and linguistic heritage through empowerment of bilingual children and families

The GENERAL OBJECTIVE of PEaCH is to create step-by-step guidance for parents and  educators on how to support, maintain and develop a child’s home language(s) after a family moves to a different language environment within the EU. PEaCH also wants to raise educator’s awareness of  the benefits of bilingualism and home languages.

Therefore, PEaCH will reach two types of main TARGET USERS:

  • Parents in multilingual families across the EU;

  • O1 Handbook for Parents on bilingual upbringing;
  • O2 Set of Educational Videos;
  • O3 represents language-specific materials used to enhance language skill development of children;
  • O4 Toolkit for PEaCH Ambassadors and Educators.

Main impact of PEaCH project:

  • Creation of universal method of upbringing of bilingual children explained in educational videos in all 24 EU official languages;
  • Developing online database of materials for all 24 EU official languages as support resources for parents, teachers and educators;
  • Training for teachers and educators through series of webinars regarding bilingualism, support to families, etc.;
  • Creation of a European Network of PEaCH Ambassadors - Teachers and Educators interested in bilingual upbringing.
