Multilingualism Moves Our World
Discover Your Language Intersection
This past February at the JNCL-NCLIS annual Language Advocacy Days event, we showcased the stories of professionals from various fields whose work depends on multilingualism, and explored how language intersects with their abilities to create opportunities, build relationships, and address needs in the work they do. We are proud to present the extended release of their stories through our Language at the Intersection Insights Interview Series to highlight how multilingualism moves our world.
The JNCL-NCLIS Language at the Intersection Insights Interview Series is made possible by our generous sponsors at Vista Higher Learning. Learn more about Vista Higher Learning's commitment to raising the teaching and learning of languages, literacy, and culture to a higher level.
