Parents speaking at least one foreign language are becoming increasingly more common throughout Europe. At the same time, many of these multilingual parents hesitate to bring a foreign language to their children without the help of a professional teacher. This can easily be explained as most parents have not been trained either as a teacher or a language professional. Additionally, at the present pace of change, many parents simply lack any extra time they can dedicate to their children. This project will develop a set of support materials that will help parents acquire skills necessary for introducing a foreign language to their children aged 4-6 along with their general development, even when no 'extra' time for learning is available. The materials will require neither professional pedagogical nor linguistic education from the parents. The support materials are meant to help parents transform many situations into learning activities. Thus, parents will be provided with tools for integrating learning in the real life activities in which they engage their children. As a result, no 'extra' time for learning is required.

The support materials will be created for seven languages (English, German, French, Italian, Latvian, Russian and Dutch), piloted in at least three countries and published as a CD and online.

The consortium for the project consists of nine institutions from six EU Member States: Latvia, the Holland, Germany, the United Kingdom, Italy and Spain. It also involves three associative partners: the European Parents Association, the Ministry of Education in Brandenburg and the Turkish Lifelong Learning Centre.
