Building Bilingual Friendships
We have a process for community organizations and businesses which have participants who have difficulty interacting because of language differences.We put people from two (sometimes three) language groups together, and help them communicate with one another, and in the process become friends. While this looks like a language program, it is really a community building tool which REALLY WORKS! We have complete lesson plans and handouts on how to do this, easy enough for anyone to follow, and give workshops around the country on our method. Based in Los Angeles, California, we most often do this program in Spanish/English, but have also facilitated it in English/Korean; Vietnamese/English; Farsi/English, and other language combinations.
