    Minority languages: resources and opportunities

    11:30 - 12:30Edinburgh University

    Research on bilingualism over the lifespan shows that knowing more than one language – any language – can benefit the mind. Join Prof Antonella Sorace discussing why research tells us all languages are worth learning and how minority languages, such as Gaelic and Sardinian, are a particularly precious resource. The talk will be followed by a Q & A session.

    Part of the Edinburgh Gaelic Festival 2017.

    Booking details coming soon.
