Hello and welcome
Happy to meet you here! My name is Rita Rosenback and I founded Multilingual Parenting as a blog in January 2012. Languages have always been a great passion of mine and after studying German, Swedish and Finnish in both Finland and Germany I have worked as a language teacher, interpreter, translator and as a manager of multinational teams. I am now a full-time writer, speaker, trainer and coach.
Having brought up two daughters to speak the family languages I wanted to share with others what I learnt along the way. In 2014 I published my first book “Bringing up a Bilingual Child” which is an easy-to-read guide for parents and educators of children learning to speak more than one language. You can read more about the book and order your own signed copy here.

Need someone to support your expat employees with the family languages?
Moving to another country is a big step for a family and when there is a different language involved, it is even more challenging. Contact me!
