ABOUT THE TOPIC

Speaking more than one language today is the new normal. More than half of the world's population speaks at least two languages. Knowing more than one language contributes to professional success. Beyond being able to communicate with people from various cultures and backgrounds, being bilingual has many hidden benefits that are desirable in today’s global workplace. Come hear from two bilingual experts what those benefits are and dispel some myths about bilingualism.
