Der Nettoerlös des Abends wurde an das aufstrebende zweisprachige Programm der Schule gespendet.Continue reading

I am thrilled to keynote during DC’s upcoming Multilingual Education Fair on January 26. Co-sponsored by the key education institutions of the District, the fair features 100 exhibitors covering 12 languages to allow you to explore and deepen your linguistic and cultural skills, and learn about careers where language skills are crucial.
The Fair will be located on the Gallaudet University campus at the I. King Jordan Student Academic Center (800 Florida Ave NE, Washington DC 20002).
Sylvia Wellhoëfer is a German mom I met a few years ago in Brooklyn. With a group of parents she created NYC’s first German dual-language program and she was the inspiration for my chapter on German in my book, The Bilingual Revolution. One thing leading to another, we are launching this book’s German version at Goethe-Institut New York on January 8 (see Book release of Die bilinguale revolution). I am pretty sure this will trigger many more good things here and in Germany.

During New York’s Bilingual Fair with Kathleen Stein-Smith and our soon-to-be released book, The Gift of Languages: Paradigm Shift In Foreign Language Education. The book explores the many advantages of multilingual education and sets the stage for a new paradigm in our approach to teaching and learning languages. Also, the book touches on the issue of foreign language deficit in the United States and the changes that need to occur in our schools to better serve our children and our linguistic communities. The book also explores the growth of dual-language education in recent years and explores the connection between both multilingual programming and solving the United States’ foreign language problem.
