This website has been created in 2012 by Sharon Unsworth, Ivana Brasileiro and Manuela Pinto in order to provide updated and research-based information to bilingual families about raising children with more than one language.
We are linguists specialized in the field of early bilingualism and second language acquisition. We are passionate about our work and we believe that the knowledge we gather with our research ought to be shared with non-specialists, out there. In these past years we have given many workshops and (informal) talks for parents, professionals, policy makers and for anyone interested in bilingualism and bilingual education.
To date, Ivana is policy advisor at the Utrecht School of Economics and Sharon is associate professor at Radboud University where she continues her professional activities and her public engagement with unchanged commitment. The Growingupbilingual team proceeds with revived enthusiasm and with two new members: Shalom Zuckerman, expert in psycholinguistics and in cognitive aspects of multilingualism, and Zuzanna Grądzka, multilingual student (Polish, Dutch, English, Spanish, Italian, …) specializing in second language acquisition.
