View Full Version : BK-All World Brooklyn: Growing Up Global at the Coop School, Sunday, May 1 at 3 pm

Please join Lango Brooklyn and Families with Children from China for a screening of Speaking in Tongues as part of World Brooklyn: Growing Up Global.

At a time when 31 states have passed “English Only” laws, four pioneering families put their children in public schools where, from the first day of kindergarten, their teachers speak mostly Chinese or Spanish. Speaking in Tongues follows four diverse kids on a journey to become bilingual. This charming story will challenge you to rethink the skills that Americans need in the 21st century.

The event will open with a Spanish concert by Bilingual Birdies and a Spanish puppet show called One, Two, Tres by P is for Puppets.

Mandarin, Spanish and French language expo with Brooklyn Beanstock, International School of Brooklyn, Language and Laughter Studio, Musica Para Mi and El Pequeno Artista. Public immersion schools to be added shortly.

Free babysitting and Chinese kite making provided by Lango Brooklyn.
