Lots of interest for The Bilingual Revolution in Los Angeles. I had a great exchange with the participants, and presented my vision for the future of education which calls for the creation of dual-language education programs in every city. I also met with several very active parents and educators who are working towards creating new dual-language programs in Los Angeles.

Great exchange today at la Librairie des Enfants, a cute bookstore in Manhattan’s Upper East Side. Parents and educators came in to chat about bilingualism, dual-language education, and The Bilingual Revolution. Among the languages represented we had Russian, Spanish, French, Italian, Arabic, Kabyle, and English.
Aux États-Unis, on fait aussi la révolution ! De passage en France, j’ai pu présenter mon nouveau livre, La Révolution bilingue, à l’American Library in Paris. L’occasion de parler d’éducation bilingue et du développement constant des filières bilingues dans les écoles aux États-Unis. C’était ma première rencontre et dédicace en France, à Paris, en langue anglaise et, qui plus est, dans une institution américaine !
Revolutions do come from the United States! I stopped by the American Library in Paris to present my new book, The Bilingual Revolution, and discuss bilingual education and the rise of dual language programs in the United States. This was my first book talk in France, and it was done in English and in an American institution!
I was thrilled to take part in both NYC’s Bilingual Fair and the Ich Bin Expat Fair today. The first event was hosted by French Morning and Fordham University and gathered hundreds of exhibitors and participants from various linguistic communities. The second event was hosted CityKinder, a New York-based group, and offered a multitude of opportunities to meet German businesses, schools, and community organizations. I was able to take part in several talks on bilingual education and share insights on the Bilingual Revolution while meeting with parents and educators from the Tri-State and beyond who shared the same desire to see more dual language programs open in schools everywhere.
