Video: Bilingualism: speaking two languages at home

In this short video, migrant worker Halime Duzen and parents from different cultures talk about bilingualism and speaking two languages. They say learning English is important, but it’s also good to keep speaking your family’s first language at home. It helps children stay connected to their community and talk to their relatives.
