Duo family training is for intercultural couples who have just become parents or are expecting a baby. The training consists of three optional parts:
• Face-to-face family meeting (in Helsinki) and/or
• Bilingualism workshop (in Helsinki) and/or
• Self-study material (online course)
The main purpose of the Face-to-face meeting is to get to know other intercultural couples in the same life situation and to share thoughts and experiences about intercultural family life and parenthood. In the Bilingualism workshop parents will get information about bilingualism and practical ideas for raising children in different multilingual situations. The training is in English and free of charge. Please note. The training complements the training offered by “neuvola”, but does not replace it. It does not include for example birth training or information about how to take care of a newborn baby.

• Bilingualism workshop: Thursday 5.10. (17.00-19.00) or Saturday 25.11. (12.00-14.00)
