Speaking in tongues, film on promoting, maintaining ‘home’ language of children

From the Speaking in Tongues website: “Julian, Jason, Kelly, Durell.  Four typical American kids with one exception.  Their parents placed them in schools where, from the first day of Kindergarten, their teachers speak Chinese or Spanish.  Why? To give them a career edge.  To raise their academic achievement.  To maintain their home language.  Or to help communicate with their grandparents.

“What would it be like if your parents put you in a school where the teacher spoke a foreign language?”

Speaking in Tongues makes the case for promoting the maintaining of ones home language. Speaking in Tongues follows 4 diverse children in their roles as global citizens.
