Summer light series: American outliers

Jun 28, 2019, 12:25 PM

To mark this Independence Day, we’re rebroadcasting our podcast on “American Outliers.” It tells a modern immigrant family’s tale and their success in coming to America, professionally but also linguistically. Both parents and both sons speak English plus four other languages. How did they succeed in becoming a two-generation, multilingual American household? Meet the Roepers and hear their story in Episode 8 of the America the Bilingual podcast. Happy Fourth of July from all of us at America the Bilingual!
