Spelling bee champs work hard to succeed with English, whether it’s their native language or not. Kudos to these kids who were champions in the spelling bee! I was a judge there, so I got to see the spirited efforts of all the kids! Hooray!
Language is the basic medium of culture, and through each of our languages we have a window on the mindset and organization of the world’s cultures. We learn about each other’s cultures when we learn languages, and by sharing languages we share cultures, all around the world!
