Bilingualism Across the U.S. Infographic
I thought this infographic on bilingualism in the United States was interesting. Bilinguals/multilinguals have skills that we should take advantage of, rather than mock; some of these people can be future language teachers or translators.
Originally from Chicago, I lived in southern Sweden for nearly 5.5 years, and moved to southern Wales in September 2006. I completed a Ph.D. translation studies in June 2009 at Swansea University, with a dissertation on the translation of children's literature.
Now I live in Norwich, England, where I am a lecturer at the University of East Anglia, and I also work as a translator, writer, and editor.
