Sheyla Shreck's curator insight, April 30, 2:25 PM
In a monolingual culture, how do we preserve the abilities of bi or multi-lingual populations? Being able to speak more than one language has been shown to be an asset both at home and abroad. Monolinguals only have the potential of increasing their knowledge in one language, whereas, multilingual speakers have the potential to learn, interact and develop their knowledge in many fields of content and social interactions. Language learning have many social and cognitive advantages, supporting language diversity is key to global citizenry and democracy.
