Description: 

Speaking in Tongues follows four diverse students on their path to bilingualism. An African-American boy from public housing learns to read, write, and speak Mandarin. A Mexican-American boy, whose parents are not literate in any language, develops academic Spanish while mastering English. A Chinese-American girl regains a language lost to her parents through assimilation. A Caucasian teen’s Mandarin skills ease cross-cultural exchange. Their stories reveal the promise of a multilingual America as each student develops both bicultural and bilingual fluency. Runtime: 56 minutes
