New DVDs

Speaking in Tongues. DVD.

“Jason, Durrell, Julian, Kelly. Four typical American kids, with on e 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 them speak with their grandparents. You’ll be charmed and challenged by this award-winning film’s insightful exploration of the rewards and hurdles these pioneering students face as they become bilingual. Enter their world, and ask yourself – today, is one language enough?” from the back cover of the DVD.
