The MiT was founded in July 2018 and it is an information centre which gives academic advice to anyone who is interested in or is involved with raising, educating and caring for bilingual children, adolescents or adults. One of the goals of MiT is to build a bridge between researchers and society by presenting recent findings on the social and cognitive advantages of bilingualism or multilingualism. The specialist areas of expertise of the MiT-team are: fostering of languages of origin, multilingualism in families, multilingualism in kindergarten, multilingualism in schools, clinical speech therapy and learning foreign/second languages. The MiT consists of 10 members. The directors of the branch are Prof. Dr. Tanja Rinker and Prof. Dr. Doreen Bryant.
