The Language Show, London is Europe's largest language event. Its takes place over three days and is packed with educational seminars, language classes, live forums and cultural performances in an incredible celebration of languages. The Show is open to anyone with a passion for languages, whether you’re a language teacher, professional or just love languages.
This year Professor Ludovica Serratrice and Professor Theo Marinis will be delivering a seminar posing the question, 'Why is it good to learn languages: what does the research show?'. They will explore how speaking two languages has many social and economic benefits, but also ask what the cognitive implications are of learning a second or third language in childhood, adulthood or in old age. They will share research evidence on how learning another language affects aspects of memory, attention and perspective-taking sills across the lifespan.
In edition to the seminar, the Centre for Literacy and Multilingualism will be exhibiting at stand 66 where delagates will have the opportunity to learn about, and engage in current research. To find out more about the show and to register your attendance please visit The Language Show website.
