I have just created a new group for multilingua families ( https://www.bigtent.com/groups/familingua ) and I thought most of you would be interested.
Familingua is a group for MULTILINGUAL families which offer many features, including: - Members can VERY EASILY identify and contact other families speaking the same "minority" language in a specific area with a view to meet in real life - Members can join a PRIVATE subgroup of LOCAL families speaking the same "minority" language. This subgroup allows to share local information related to the additional language, discuss online with other local families speaking the additional language about future meetups or other topics of their choice, edit and share a commun calendar for local language-specific events. All of these subgroup's feature facilitate real-life meetups and the development of a local community around a common "minority" language - Forums, Calendars, ...
If you are a multilingual family, we would like to invite you to join.
Looking forward to welcoming you on Familingua soon.
Ok, I managed to register by putting a US timezone and then was able to choose the country I'm in from a menu. There are only 16 members in the UK so far so it would be good if more people signed up. It looks like it'll be a good way of finding people who speak your language that live in your area.
Hi, Sorry for not having been able to help last week. I am a full-time working mum and I do this group in my spare-time, so, I try to do my best but I can obviously not match professional websites ;o). Anyway, thanks for your perseverance, your feedback and for further promoting the site after you joined to encourage other to join. Thanks also lummox for helping in the meantime. I thought I had added the timezone issue in the email members receive to join, but apparently the change wasn't saved. I have added a note about it and I hope people will no longer have difficulties joining because of this. All, continue joining the group, you will see it offers a very easy way to find other local families with the same language than you. Lucile https://www.bigtent.com/groups/familingua
