From bilingual education to cultural diversity, our books cover a wide array of topics aimed at promoting multilingualism, and they certainly seemed to strike a chord with the visitors. It was a pleasure to engage in thoughtful discussions and connect with fellow book lovers. We extend our heartfelt thanks to everyone who made the event a success!Lire la suite : Embracing Linguistic Diversity at the Festival du Livre de Paris
Last week, we had the privilege of celebrating the launch of Ellen Bialystok’s latest book, “Bilingual Children,” in no less than the heart of France – the enchanting city of Paris. This event was more than just a book launch; it was a celebration of bilingualism, a testament to the power of language, and a testament to the growing recognition of the importance of bilingual education.
Our first rendezvous was at the Festival du Livre de Paris, an annual literary extravaganza that attracts authors, publishers, and book lovers from all corners of the world. Ellen Bialystok graced the event with her insightful discourse on her book, followed by a book signing session. It was a remarkable sight to see a line of people, young and old, waiting to get their copies of “Bilingual Children” signed by Ellen herself. This book is not just a read; it’s a journey into the world of bilingual children, filled with scientific research, personal narratives, and practical insights.
Our second event was an intellectual feast at the picturesque Salons of the Mairie in the 16th arrondissement. This discussion on bilingual education featured Ellen Bialystok, alongside esteemed experts Hélène H. Leone, and Fabrice Jaumont. The panel discussion was stimulating, with a palpable sense of passion in the room. The experts presented a compelling case for the benefits of bilingual education, not just for individual children but for families and communities as a whole.
Inspiring, educating, and promoting multilingualism is at the core of our mission at CALEC. The reception to “Bilingual Children” and our other French publications at the Festival du Livre de Paris, as well as the insightful discussion at Salons of the Mairie, reaffirms our commitment.
We extend our sincere thanks to the authors, Ellen Bialystok and Fabrice Jaumont, and to our incredible team in Paris for their hard work and dedication. The success of these events was a collaborative effort, and we couldn’t be more grateful.
Stay tuned for more exciting events, book releases, and initiatives from CALEC. Until next year, Paris! 📖
