Feb 21: Motherlanguage Day!

February 22, 2013

And here’s an article on David Harrison with videos and all! http://dailyedventures.com/index.php/2013/02/21/11656/

I first heard him speak on a podcast episode by National Geographic years ago. Unfortunately, this very interesting podcast disappeared, but “Interview to a Linguist” is here because I use it in class with Avanzado 2 people.

More on his work, I published a little workshop on the importance of languages on this blog with excerpts of his very interesting book When Language Die — hello, David and Ana! and thanks for the permission! — and then Sheldonina used it to create her own presentation on the matter at university — she got the highest mark she could get! Hopefully, we’ll publish that on talkingpeople.net soon-ish.
