Mother Tongue occasionally participates in the Amazon UK Associates Programme and in the AWIN programme. These are affiliate advertising programmes designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to Amazon.co.uk or to advertisers signed up to AWIN. It also participates in the WOOK programme. Wook is a Portuguese online bookshop.
This means that if you click on one of these links, for example to Amazon, from this site, I may receive a small percentage of the sale. When these links are used in posts, I will make that clear on a statement at the top of the post and mark the links with an asterisk (*).
Should I receive a payment or product for an item featured or reviewed in a blog post, I will use the appropriate statements, and hashtags on social media, to make this transparent.
I review products and services that I like, whether or not they are gifted (most are not). All my reviews are honest, even when the product has been donated.
This website includes references to things and products related to the theme of raising bilingual children, multiculturalism and an appreciation of all things Portuguese. Some of these will be affiliate links, others not. In either case, all the products and services mentioned, or promoted on this website, are things I believe in. If the maker or supplier is part of an affiliate programme, I will use that link. If they are not, I will simply promote it anyway, because I like it and believe my readers will too.
