Tuesday, May 3, 2022 19:00to20:00
Debra Titone et Gigi Luk

Debra Titone (Dept. of Psychology) and Gigi Luk (Dept. of Educational and Counselling Psychology)

We live in an increasingly connected world where cultures, identities, and languages overlap - at home, at school, and in the workplace. This is especially true in a place such as Montreal, where you can hear French, English, and a multitude of other languages as you walk along the streets. Have you ever wondered what makes someone bilingual? And is bilingualism a choice? Join our speakers Prof. Debra Titone and Assoc. Prof. Gigi Luk in a conversation about learning, using, and living with multiple languages.
