Early January, I launched the German version of The Bilingual Revolution, Die bilinguale revolution, Zweisprachigkeit und die Zukunft der Bildung, at the Goethe-Institut in New York. As most of parents in New York were registering their children to the Kindergarten classes, it was the occasion to speak about the German Dual Language Program at P.S. 18 Edward Bush located in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. The net proceeds from the evening were donated to the school’s emerging dual-language program.
Thanks to the Goethe Institut – New York, we were able to launch this book the proper way. I must admit that I have always admired the work of the Goethe Institut in the field of language education and bilingualism. I have contributed to their platform on bilingual education in the past and it is always a pleasure to work with their team, and in particular Andrea Pfeil and Ajkuna Hoppe whom I thank wholeheartedly. I am grateful for their support of the translation of The Bilingual Revolution in German. Also, as you can judge from the pictures below it was impressive to see the cover of my book, designed by French artist Raymond Verdaguer, projected on the wall of the Goethe’s library center in New York. Thanks also to Gitte Beckman for discussing the book with me.
The book is available on all major online retailers and on tbr-books.com. If you want to support PS18’s German Program enter coupon Support PS18 on tbr-books.com. Net proceeds will be donated to the school.
