GCSE students talk multilingualism to the Cambridge Bilingualism Network

OPS was fascinated to hear from OPS 2014 speaker Dr Napoleon Katsos about Your Languages, Your Future: a short film recently commissioned by the Cambridge Bilingualism Network.

In Your Languages, Your Future, a group of multilingual GCSE students describe the many advantages of speaking more than more than one language, and having a qualification to show for it. The film also features University of Cambridge academics who work on languages, and Cambridge’s Vice-Chancellor, Professor Sir Leszek Borysiewicz, who was UK born in Wales to Polish parents.

You can watch Your Languages, Your Future here.

This film is part of the activities of the Cambridge Bilingualism Network, which was set up in 2010 by Cambridge researchers to promote the public understanding of of bilingualism through their work with schools and communities.
