Co-presented by the French American School of Puget Sound, The French Immersion School of Washington, and the Stroum Jewish Community Center “Bilingualism used to be about equalization in the U.S.; now it is about globalization.” Professor Emeritus Fred Genesee of McGill University in Montreal believes that bilingualism used to be a necessity primarily for immigrants coming to the U.S. in order for them to integrate in an English-speaking society. More recently, he believes, more individuals and families are focused on becoming bilingual because of the explosion of globalization in business, travel, and media. “Parents want their children to be part of a global village.” Professor Genesee specializes in research on brain function in early bilingual language learners because he believes that language is central to a child’s learning abilities. He has honed this belief during his 35-year career and explains his research in numerous books and publications, the most well-known being Dual Language Development and Disorders, 2nd edition. “When I started doing research on this, the issue was very marginal in the U.S. and Canada. Now it is a hot topic.” Come hear more from Professor Genesee on this hot topic. Here are the details: Date: Wednesday April 30th, 2014 Time: 6pm Location: Stroum Jewish Community Center, 3801 East Mercer Way, Mercer Island, WA 98040 This event is free and open to the public.
