Have you ever wondered what the point of learning another language is? Or what the benefits are of speaking a home language?
Over the past 4 years, the different strands of our research project have uncovered a range of meaningful ways in which learning a language or speaking a home language can change your life for the better. And we've put them all together for you in this booklet! Through the personal stories and experiences of families, teachers, school and university students, as well as the occasional celebrity, our booklet will challenge your preconceptions and fears about learning and speaking another language.
