Hello! We are Daphne and Mimi and, together with our founder, Eowyn, are here to support you with and guide you through the complexities of all aspects of multilingual child-rearing. Of course, always tailored to your unique family dynamics!
I am Daphne and I am a New York-qualified international human rights lawyer. I have lived and worked as an expat since 2006, first in Italy and Bosnia-Herzegovina, followed by the UK (London), the Democratic Republic of the Congo (Kinshasa) and the Netherlands (The Hague). In 2023 I moved to Athens, where I currently live with my husband and three children. I am a CELTA-qualified English language trainer and am currently pursuing a Postgraduate Certificate in Teaching Multilingual Learners. Being fluent in English, French, Greek and Italian, I also have a working knowledge of Dutch and Spanish. Motivated by this passion, and by my own experience in raising multilingual children, I am dedicated to helping families create an environment that fosters multilingual development. I am also an avid writer on expat issues, including the role of language on cultural identity.
I am Mimi. I moved to Munich, Germany from Bulgaria in 2000, where I completed my Master’s degree in English Linguistics and Applied Linguistics. I am a CELTA-qualified English language trainer and hold a Postgraduate Certificate in Teaching Multilingual Learners. I am fluent in Bulgarian, English and German and have a basic command of Dutch and Russian. My career initially led me through more than a decade of diverse experiences in international corporate settings. Yet, my heart always remained closely tied to my linguistic 'roots.' Driven by my passion, I embarked on a fresh and more purposeful journey. My mission? To guide and support families as they navigate the intricate landscape of multilingualism.
I have been living in the Netherlands (just outside of Amsterdam) for the past five years with my husband and two children.
Dr. Eowyn Crisfield, founder and lead adviser, is a qualified language teacher (BEd Teaching English as a second language) and Applied Linguist (MA and PhD Applied Linguistics), with specialisations in child bilingualism and education. She is also the (co) author of two books and a Senior Lecturer in TESOL at Oxford Brookes University.
Being not only language professionals, but also mums of multilingual children, our expertise is grounded in a combination of scientific research and hands-on, day-to-day practice alike. Our mission is to empower, support and educate families and professionals on bi-/multilingualism in development and family language planning.
