Join us on May 18 and 19 in New York

Ellen Bialystok, an expert in cognitive psychology from York University in Toronto, Canada, will discuss the connections among bilingualism, emotional intelligence, brain development, and education. Dr. Bialystok’s research shows how in the bilingual brain the early development of some cognitive functions helps bilinguals manage multiple tasks more easily.

Ellen Bialystok is a pioneer in bilingualism. She has been working on bilingualism for nearly 40 years and uses many methods, ranging from psychology to behavioral sciences and modern imagery, to support and deepen her research. Hosted by the Cultural Services of the French Embassy and FACE Foundation.

Join us on Friday, May 18 at 7:00pm Albertine - 972 Fifth Avenue, New York, NY 10075

What’s the best age to start and master a new language? Are bilinguals smarter? Does being bilingual have an impact on our personal and emotional development? Ellen Bialystok will discuss her research on bilinguals and how she uses behavioral and neuroimaging methods to examine the effect of bilingualism on cognitive processes across the lifespan. Her discoveries include differences in essential cognitive abilities as children develop and postponement of systems of dementia in older bilingual adults. Preceded by a presentation of the French Dual Language Fund by Bénédicte de Montlaur, Cultural Counselor, and moderated by Fabrice Jaumont. The event will be livestreamed, and available for replay afterwards.

Bilingual education has been an educational option in many countries for over 50 years but it remains controversial, especially in terms of its appropriateness for all children. This concersation will examine research evaluating the outcomes of bilingual education for language and literacy levels, academic achievement, and suitability for children with special challenges. The focus is on early education and the emphasis is on American contexts. Special attention is paid to factors such as socioeconomic status that are often confounded with the outcomes of bilingual education. The conversation will be moderated by Fabrice Jaumont. The event will be livestreamed, and available for replay afterwards.
