Ana Lucia: Do you have to be affiliated with a school? or would it work for home school too?
Ana Lucia Lico
02:01:24
What do you mean, Shawn? To stablish a dual language school?

Andrew Palmacci
02:02:20
How to integrate into a private school which has a high school world language program, but not bilingual? Would it be useful to re-start a bilingual program at this same school's middle/primary school section while the high school remains second-language based?
Shawn Slakk
02:03:20
I was wondering if the program would work for home school folks! No, not start a school, but work with your program materials and etc.
Agnes He
02:03:32
Some say, heritage languages will give rise to social division and undermine American cohesion. What is your response? Thank you.
Comitato Promotore della Lingua Italiana
02:04:01
Question for Prof Jaumount: As an Italian who started an Italian bilingual school 10 years ago, most all our parents are 3rd/4th generation. While they appreciate the program for what it provides, they are lukewarm to doing the work to get a dual language program since there is currently an italian second language culture program. There is push back from the district to encourage anymore than that…suggestions? Am in Edmonton, Alberta Canada
Shawn Slakk
02:06:53
And some languages don't have critiacal mass to have a school unto itself Parents might want to have help with teaching the home language
Reem Khamis-Dakwar
02:09:14
HOw is the political reality affecting communities to take on such important initiatives?
deniseguidotti
02:09:20
To Agnes. Au contraire. Knowing more than one language brings us together and does not divide us.
Comitato Promotore della Lingua Italiana
02:09:30
How do/can we address the issue of teachers able to speak the language? In my case, the few teachers that I know are not fluent speakers and those that are fluent speakers are not certified teachers.
Cynthia Bjork
02:11:40
Thank you for this opportunity and for the kind and generous gift of book.
Maria Polinsky

the sound keeps drop[ing, it will help if more people turned their video off
Robin Harvey
02:14:06
Thank you so much! I have to go to another Zoom meeting :)
deniseguidotti
02:14:23
Certified or not, having a native of the language can promote learning. My grandkids are fluent in French and I continue to speak to them in French. They are american. One is learning Spanish in school . I believe it does bring people together and help with diversity.
Shawn Slakk
02:15:50
What is the ultimate purpose about certification? College or high school credit, or multilingual ability?
Cristian Aquino Sterling
02:16:26
What does it mean to do bilingual/dual language education in this historical moment? Are current frameworks (“the four pillars”) enough? Should bilingual education expand its goals given current challenges? What does this moment mean for bilingual ed?
An Chung Cheng
02:17:50
In light of the remote teaching in many please, what do you think of creating an online "community-based" school among all the families of languages in cities where there are no critical mass to form a physical meeting place?
Kristina (Tinna)
02:18:12
I can ask Fabrice later, but I was curious about the concept of dual language programmes - the
David Giancaspro
02:19:11
I may be wrong, but I get the impression that many of the amazing bilingual schools that you showed in your presentation emerged from the advocacy of upper- and upper-middle class parents who have the educational and economic resources to ultimately convince community-decision makers to give bilingual schools a shot. What advocacy recommendations do you have for bilingual communities where many parents (e.g., first-generation immigrants from Mexico and Central America) have less time, education, and economic resources to advocate for their children’s bilingual education?
Kristina (Tinna)
02:20:48
rather than dual language schools. How large would the proportion of students in the DLP in any of these schools typically be and is there generally balance between demand and supply of dual language teaching in these schools?
K H
02:21:29
Building on David G’s question above, how do you start engaging parents of minority languages, like Micronesian, to be the drivers of Dual Language programs?
Igor Mota
02:22:39
What's your opinion on the usage of the term 'plurilingualism' instead of 'bilingualism'? Is it possible, in a near future, to have these dual-language programs to evolve into plurilingual programs?
Shawn Slakk
02:23:31
Keep pushing! The district is just being lazy!
Kristina (Tinna)
02:24:31
Have to go, thank you. Interesting discussion!
Farrokh Farrokhzad
02:24:53
Some minorities have been living in the US for decades and are still under the negative impact of sociopolitical atmosphere prevailed by media. What do you think about the political impact of US society on bilingualism and bilingual education? How do you think they might overcome these hurdles in order to share the wealth of their culture and contribute more freely to the country they have accepted as home?
Shawn Slakk
02:24:55
Yes, a lame excuse! Keep looking!
deniseguidotti
02:26:03
To Igor. I am a native French. I am dually certified to teach French and Spanish in our public school. I also taught it online in N.C thru NCVPS. N C virtual public school and it is free. I retired but I miss it. Once you know one romance language the second one is a piece of cake.

:-) Thanks Shawn :-)
Maria Polinsky
02:26:25
Thanks so much, this was a great presentation!
Shawn Slakk
02:27:02
Farrokh, great question! Absolutely! Again, the more we all know about each other and can communicate about our respective cultures the more comfortable and richer we will be!
deniseguidotti
02:27:09
certification is BA in some states and other require MA.
Shawn Slakk
02:29:07
Georgia is gearing up too. More an more are payng attention to how smart iti si to be multilingual.
deniseguidotti
02:30:04
To Shawn, Your post is wonderful. The more we learn about others culture the more we share compassion and respect and not judge anyone because they are speaking a different language.
Farrokh Farrokhzad
02:30:31
Shawn, Some of those families are even scared to talk about their home country and introduce themselves as some other nationalities.

Every language promotor ( Hindi in my case) faces unique problems in order to launch a bilingual program.
deniseguidotti
02:32:40
Look around. Kids learned English while in the use and they speak Spanish at home or the language of their parents.
Anna Fantuzzi
02:33:03
Thank you for sharing all of this with us. It is very inspiring. We started an Italian school in Chicago (SIEF),and listening to you helped me to understand better that we need to be together in developing bilingual programs.

Thank you, Joy for injecting enthusiasm among the heritage coalition.
deniseguidotti
02:33:56
Do you all know that the official language in England 200 years ago was French?
deniseguidotti
02:34:30
The demoiselle went sent to France to learn French.
Shawn Slakk
02:34:36
Yes, that happened after I left the school I was at and fought for a program. The principal left and then the program got tabled!
Joy Peyton

Thank you all for being together here! It is wonderful to be able to do this!
