Personalized Consultation for Your Family [online or in-person]
In a personalized consultation, we focus on your specific situation, the questions you have about your family and practical strategies and tips that work for your family and goals. Get answers to your questions about raising your child(ren) with more than one language and hands-on strategies and practical tips for your family and unique situation. The consultation is tailored to your family, the particular languages involved in your life and the questions you have and the things you would like to discuss or know more about.

Connect with Anne from anywhere in the world from your phone, desktop, mobile or tablet device, or meet with Anne in-person in the Vancouver/Lower Mainland area (travel fee of $0.68 per km applies).

I will send you a questionnaire to complete before the consultation to help me best prepare for our meeting and make it targeted to your family's situation, questions, concerns and language goals.
Semi-Personalized Consultation for a Group of 2 to 5 Families [online]
A semi-personalized consultation is a great choice if you have friends that are also raising their children with more than one language. You can book a semi-personalized consultation for 2 to 5 multilingual families together. A semi-personalized consultation addresses how to raise a child with the languages present in each family and the main questions each family has. The consultation provides practical strategies and tips that work for each family and their language goals. I will send each family a brief questionnaire to complete before the consultation to help me best prepare for our meeting and address each family's situation and main concerns.

What's the difference between a personalized and a semi-personalized consultation?
Family completes an in-depth questionnaire before we meet to help me prepare a targeted consultation
In-depth 1-hour consultation targeted at your specific family, questions, concerns and goals
2 - 5 families
Each family completes a brief questionnaire before we meet to help me prepare a targeted consultation
1-hour consultation with all families present simultaneously, addressing each family's situation and main concerns
More cost-effective & less in-depth for each family than a personalized consultation
