Looking for little Kletsheads!

February 15, 2021



Kletsheads is a podcast about multilingual children for parents, teachers, and speech therapists. Dr. Sharon Unsworth, a linguist and mother of two multilingual children herself, engages in conversation with experts, parents, and professionals each episode about the language development of multilingual children. Each episode we also get to hear from a multilingual child, our "Kletshead of the Week," who tells us what it's like to grow up with two (and sometimes more) languages.

For new episodes, the producers of the podcast are looking for new Kletsheads to participate. If you know a multilingual child between the ages of 6 and 16 who likes to talk, you can contact the makers of the podcast directly at kletsheads@ru.nl. The conversation takes place online, lasts about 10 minutes and can be in Dutch or English. You can listen to the podcast via the website (Dutch version or English version) or via your favorite podcast app.
