Please join KQED and Patchwork Films for a free screening of Speaking in Tongues followed by a panel discussion with Education leaders and policy makers from the Bay Area.

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.
