Don't you love hearing about how people got hooked on languages? About the funny times when words went wrong, the little moments when it was pure joy to hear the words coming out of your mouth, and the incredible stories about languages saving the day. I certainly do! And to celebrate the fact that it's nearly 20 years since I became a languages teacher, nearly 10 since we launched Babel Babies, and to mark the beginning of a new chapter as I head off to Oxford University to research language acquisition in October, I am publishing a book! In a month!
And I'd love you to be in it.
Here are the details:
Title: Multilingual is Normal
Project launch day: 10th July
Publication day: 10th August
Submissions: 700-800 words max, in English.
Submission deadline: 25th July
So, grab your dictaphone, your laptop, your favourite tale of wordy wonder/woe, your aspirations for your kids...whatever you'd like to tell the world about learning languages. We are looking for 30-40 submissions, and can't wait to hear all your stories!
