Moving countries and need to learn the language? We’ve got good news for you. In today’s episode Mickelle speaks to Olive Halsall, founder of Olea, the creators of Private Joke, a card game making language learning creative, fun and accessible.
They talk about the benefits of multilingualism and how it can change the world and how we function. When discussing the roles of identity, when it comes to speaking different languages, and relating to different aspects of what the language may represent, Olive talks of the concept she came upon - “Both, not half” which speaks to validating all aspects of our identity and that embracing one language or culture does not mean to embrace another one less.
She has lots of ideas for parents and adults alike on how we can navigate new languages and how to support our children in this transition. For world citizens, this is one you cannot miss!
