This winter, Reykjavík City started a project to transform services for multilingual children in Reykjavík. The main goal of the project is to support multilingual children and their families and promote Icelandic language skills. An extensive user consultation took place in the project, where a number of children, families, teachers and other stakeholders were interviewed.

One part of the project were workshops with 120 children in the 4th grade. There, the children answered questions about language, validation and attitudes. For each question, the children were given different forms to answer and at last they formed a language flower from the answers. Each colour and each shape in the language flowers represent different answers to the questions, so you can read various interesting information from the exhibition.
