If you're interested in bilingual education, this book is for you. By creating more dual-language programs in schools, we give the opportunity to children to keep their heritage language, to learn a new language, growing up discovering a new culture. We, parents, can be involved and make things change! We need bilingual education to be the new norm, creating a more inclusive society.
