Introducing Renata Emilsson Peskova (Episode 63)

“All languages are valuable as all people are valuable. Because the language’s a part of our identity of who we are so if we do not respect and recognize the language, it’s like not respecting and recognizing the person. And plurilingualism or multilingualism is a natural state for human mind. It’s normal that we are plurilingual. So it’s a positive thing and it is an educational value. It’s a goal for everybody to be plurilingual in the world that we are facing.”
