Pui Fong Kan, Associate Professor of Speech, Language and Hearing Sciences leads this speaking engagement that explores the benefits of bilingualism, specifically the advantages of learning a home language. Many bilingual individuals in the US learn a home language (also known as a "minority language") at home (e.g., Spanish) and use English in school settings. Maintaining a home language can have numerous benefits, such as facilitating English learning, improving academic performance, fostering identity, and enhancing overall well-being.
