Italians abroad and people who have parents that speak two languages know the advantages of the bilingualism.
As an example, London is a real global city, where you can obviously speak and listen to the English language, but you can also listen to many other languages of the world.
For those interested on bilingual education, language learning, and the bilingual experience in the greater London area, there is now Bilingualism Matters London: series of free meetings on interests, experiences, thoughts and questions about bilingualism in London, organized by the Institute of Modern Languages Research, School of Advanced Study, University of London.
The first meeting is scheduled for friday, November 1, 2019. Venue: Warburg Institute, Woburn Square, London WC1H 0AB, 5 pm – 7.30 pm (UK time).
