Speaking in Tongues follows four diverse public school kids on their
journey to become bilingual. This award-winning, public television
documentary witnesses the challenges and delights they encounter on
the way, showcasing the impact their linguistic skill has on their
families, communities, and potentially, the nation.

Educators will appreciate the critical questions about immigration,
national identity, and globalization brought to life through these
engaging, real-life stories. In these times when most states have
"English Only" initiatives on the books, Speaking in Tongues considers
the provocative notion that speaking another language just might be a
national asset. In the 21st century, is English enough?
