  • Speaking in Tongues
  • Description:

    Film Screening & Discussion

    Meet Jason, Durrel, Julian, and Kelly.  Four typical American kids, with one exception.  Their parents placed them in schools where, from the first day of kindergarten, their teachers speak a foreign language.  SPEAKING IN TONGUES uses this scenario to explore the provocative notion that being bilingual can be a national asset regardless of your home language.
