Workshop on bilingualism
By Eszter Tarsoly, Froso Argyri and Andrea Révész from the University College of London

On Saturday, 28 October 2017, a workshop will be held on bilingualism, heritage-language acquisition, and the influence of English on Hungarian-language structure in the speech of first and second generation migrants. The workshop will include interactive lectures by three experts from UCL and discussion of hands-on approaches from practitioners' point of view. While the workshop is primarily designed for teachers and parents of children who speak Hungarian as a heritage language, all are welcome.
