A book release party for The Bilingual Revolution by Fabrice Jaumont. The Bilingual Revolution tells the story of a grassroots initiative that emerged out of the dedicated involvement of motivated parents, educators, and community actors who share the belief that dual language education is a great public good that should be developed everywhere as it can positively transform a child, a school, a community, even a country.
The book will inspire and engage parents who seek to create their own bilingual programs. This work aims to bestow the benefits of bilingualism to as many children as possible, including cognitive enhancement, improved critical thinking, and a more profound sensitivity toward other people and cultures.
The book’s key message is reinforced by the belief that when these opportunities are available as early as preschool or kindergarten, children’s chances to succeed will improve and communities will be strengthened. Being bilingual should no longer be the privilege of a happy few. Being bilingual can become the new norm, and it starts with our youth. A bilingual revolution has started, and it is for our common good.
