He’s dancing with his daughter Kelly, 16, as his wife and their young son, Kid, watch from the sidelines. But on this day, Kelly disappears, and the family falls apart. Alain embarks on a relentless search for his daughter, even though it costs him everything and takes him to some far-off places. Dark unsettling places, where his sole support is Kid, who sacrifices his youth to accompany his father on this seemingly endless quest.

  • Multilingualism in the U.S. – Do Americans need more than one language?

  • Sep 25, 2014 from 1:30pm to 3:30pm
  • Location: Graduate Center - CUNY
  • Description:

    Today, given the global economy and cultural diversity, the subject of multilingualism has become more important than ever in the scientific, political and public debate.

    What is multilingualism worth and how can the long-term reality of linguistic diversity in the U.S. be promoted taking into account a variety of regional, national and supranational interests?

    Join us for an insightful roundtable discussion celebrating this year’s European Day of Languages. Different views on multilingualism will be presented and discussed from a U.S. and European perspective along their educational, economic, social and cultural fault…

    Here are some highlights: experienced and supportive
    administration, dedicated and well-trained teachers, arts residencies for every
    grade, frequent field trips, parent involvement welcome, recess outside on a
    beautiful playground, new library, relationship with gardner at McGolrick park
