Our executive director was the guest of the 12th episode of the Révolution Bilingue podcast by Fabrice Jaumont. Enjoy!

 

Passage par Washington pour ce douzième épisode de Révolution bilingue en partant à la rencontre de Vanessa Bertelli. Cette suissesse multilingue engagée, fondatrice de DC Immersion, une organisation à but non lucratif qui a changé la donne en matière d’éducation bilingue dans la ville en multipliant les plaidoyers en faveur du multilinguisme et en encourageant les éducateurs et les parents à monter des filières bilingues dans les écoles publiques. Quand la Révolution bilingue s’empare de la capitale américaine !

 

Le podcast “Révolution Bilingue” est proposé par French Morning avec le soutien de CALEC (Center for the Advancement of Languages, Education, and Communities).

Dear Families, educators, and partners,

In 2020 we announced that the DC Language Immersion Project would close its doors due to lack of resources. However, before completely dissolving the organization, we recently asked a group of local and national educators if they - individually or collectively - would be interested in continuing the work of advocating for multilingual education in the District of Columbia. We are pleased to announce that a few individuals responded yes and volunteered to forge a plan to continue this vital work.

So, we are not closing our doors but we are entering a six-to-twelve-month period of dormancy as we determine the best path forward for the DC Immersion Project.  Thank you for your continued support and please stay tuned for updates.
