Cultivating the bilingual brain podcast
Creating multi-lingual learners is not a new thing, but it has evolved and is showing up more and more in classrooms across this country. As the nation’s population becomes more diverse, so do our classrooms and what is being taught and learned.
Locally in Vancouver, Wash., a Clark College alumna is leading the effort to provide easy access to a program that develops bilingual brains and celebrates a variety of cultures. And it’s so much more than just learning a language other than English.
