If you are thinking about, or already raising a child bilingual then this event is for you. Its an opportunity to hear Chiara Lisowski’s personal story of how her upbringing led her to choose to bring up her daughter bilingual. This session will be interactive so please come with your own stories and tips. This is also an opportunity for you and your child to meet other people from Chester’s international community.
This session has been devised and created by community member Chiara Lisowski. Chiara Lisowski is passionately multilingual. Coming from an international household, she grew up speaking Italian with her mum and hearing her paternal grandparents speak Polish. Her love for different cultures and languages stems from this very upbringing! Chiara studied Music with Italian studies at The University of Birmingham then went on to teach English in Brazil for a couple of years, where she learnt Portuguese. Work brought her back to the UK where she met her Spanish husband, so Spanish was next on the list to learn. Together Chiara and her husband have a daughter who they are raising bilingually. Chiara is a driven, resilient and honest person. She is an outspoken and passionate feminist who loves with her whole heart and embraces all the ups and downs of her life.
