This is book 7. Multilingualism will prevail! For linguistic diversity, equity, mutual understanding, tolerance, and peace.
In Conversations on Bilingualism, Dr. Fabrice Jaumont delves deeper into the topics of bilingualism, bilingual education, and cognitive development through a series of conversations with world-renown experts from the Americas, Europe, and Africa: Ana Ines Ansaldo, Ellen Bialystok, Mbacké Diagne, Ofelia García, François Grosjean, and Christine Hélot. Written as a follow up to The Bilingual Revolution: The Future of Education is in Two Languages, this book expands on the work of the author to advance multilingualism, empower multilingual families and linguistic communities, and foster cross-cultural understanding. This book also advocates for language as a critical life skill through the development and the implementation of strong education programs, the promotion of diversity, and a decided battle against inequality.
