How Do Bilingual Children Acquire and Maintain their Languages? [5th November 2021, Online]
It was a well-attended, stimulating and promising affair, thanks to our invited speakers and participants. A report is now online here (will be available in the next print edition) in The Psychologist.
Major thank yous to our speakers, both academics and practitioners: keynote talk – Antonella Sorace (Edinburgh; Bilingualism Matters founder/director); Caroline Floccia (prof of Developmental Psychology Plymouth); Cate Hamilton (Babel Babies founder; PhD candidate at Oxford); Meesha Warmington (senior lecturer of Educational Psychology, Sheffield University); Eowyn Crisfield (education consultant; lecturer TESOL, Oxford Brookes); Hamish Chalmers (director of Applied Linguistics and L2 acquisition, Oxford); and the lively final panel chaired by my Roehampton colleague Eva Eppler (reader in Linguistics).
A recording can be found here. So, onwards and upwards, let’s look forward to the second seminar – planned for the week beginning 21st February 2022 (International Mother Tongue Day).
