It was great to see so much interest for multilingualism and bilingual education in Washington, DC last Saturday! The CALEC team, which included Yenlik and Meichen took part in DC Immersion’s Multilingual Education Fair with a table loaded with books, brochures, and goodies! We were thrilled to make so many new connections! 🙂 Many thanks to DC Language Immersion Project for your amazing work! 👏

NY Bilingual Fair

The full CALEC team was on deck during the 2019 Bilingual Fair in New York, and we loved it! In its 6th edition, the Bilingual Fair organized by provided parents and educators with an opportunity to learn more about bilingual education. Our table was loaded with books, brochures, and goodies. Many visitors stopped by. Our video crew was non-stop interviewing language advocates and even several VIPs, including Councilman Mark Levine and Manhattan Borough President Gale Brewer, among others. This day culminated with CALEC’s founder, Fabrice Jaumont, receiving the Leader Award, and CALEC’s vice-president, Jane Ross, receiving the Patron’s Award for their work in bilingual education and language advocacy. Mariam Moustafa, who translated our recently-released book, الثورة ثنائية اللغة received the studend award. A great day for CALEC!
