I was invited by the Alliance Francaise of Greenwich, CT to talk about the importance of being multi-lingual and my research about the bilingual revolution. I was able to explain why I learned English and how important it became for me in my career, thanks to a great teacher in the 6th grade who was able to share his passion for the English language.
I also had the chance to distribute awards and prizes to Greenwich high school students who excel in French. During a lovely ceremony held in the Greenwich Arts Center, the Alliance Française recognized and celebrated the greatness in French Language Studies in Greenwich village.
Middle school students as well as high school students were given prizes for their great achievements in the French language. A college scholarship was also awarded to Megan Tedford, who’s graduating from Greenwich High School.
Thanks to the Alliance Francaise’s wonderful team, especially Renée Amory Ketcham, president, and Gail Cockney, co-president, for their invitation.
Congratulations to all winners !
