Book Talk at NYU’s Institute of French Studies

I enjoyed this talk with the students of the Institute of French Studies at New York University. I was invited by Prof. Frédéric Viguier who is encouraging his students to look into bilingual education and the impact it can have on various linguistic communities. The students asked lots of questions on my personal and professional trajectory, on the boom of French dual-language programs in New York, and on the diversity of the city’s French-speaking community. I couldn’t help but see future teachers for the ever-expanding French dual-language schools.
