I am now blogging about dual-immersion schooling for the Oregonian's site. What this gig lacks in compensation, i hope it will make up for in credibility. I aim to be something of a local parent resource on dual-language immersion programs in Portland, and i figure having a forum on the site for the largest newspaper in Oregon couldn't hurt.
If you grew up in a home where more than one language was spoken, i imagine you know the incredible advantages it has given you in your lifetime. Even if your other language was Swahili or some other language that is not necessarily spoken on the mean streets of Chicago or P-town.
If you didn't grow up like this, then you too likely know the the incredible advantage that your bilingual friends possess. Americans are way behind the 8-ball on this one, and we have to change that, one little revolutionary at a time.
So add this to your reading list, if you are so inclined:
