BILINGUAL BRAIN CONVERSATIONS

The GLSC is proud to be a sponsor of the following event:

A new way to (look at) talk about bilingualism & multi-cultural identity the event series designed to entertain, educate and inspire….

 

Kick off event
“home is where the (heart) brain is”
March 6th 7PM
10 Hudson Yard

Exploring bilingualism beyond the obvious and into the obnoxious. When we talk about language acquisition, we always talk about gain, but could there be pain? An entertaining conversation of brilliant brains that think in many different languages & accents.

We are beyond excited to present to you the first evening of multi-flavored anecdotes, that will shine light on any identity that is navigating the semiotics of more than one culture. Stories of success and maybe below: Is the linguistic multi-tasker actually at an advantage? At age seven? At age seventy-seven? As a parent, a boss or a spiritual being?
