In the United States, France is the champion of bilingual education, pushing for the opening of “Dual Language Programs” across the country. At home, it’s a different story, especially for Arabic, the second most spoken language in France. Hypocrisy? Identity problem? We are talking about it at the Bilingual Fair 2020, which takes place online this year, from November 9 to 20.
Monday, November 9, we will welcome Nabil Wakim, journalist at Le Monde, to talk about his book “Arabic for all, why my language is taboo in France”, in conversation with Fabrice Jaumont, author of “The Bilingual Revolution”. At 2 pm Eastern time (20h in France). Registrations here.
