Being multilingual, being well

For many of us, life is a journey of finding and losing languages. We may gradually give up a language of our parents because it is not English, or embark on learning a new language. Good communication in families is consistently associated with positive wellbeing in young people – so what happens when more than one language is spoken? At this event, explore emerging research on the connections between multilingualism and wellbeing. There are expert talks as well as an opportunity to engage in interactive mapping of your own experiences, including community languages and lifelong language learning.
