What if we lived in a world where every child would grow up bilingual?

The Bilingual Revolution is a movement that emerged out of New York City around 2005 and which has now culminated into an ever-growing community of advocates for multilingual education. Around the world, newly-founded dual-language programs owe much of their success to the sheer willpower of parents. More and more dual-language programs are created simply because families or educators asked for them or were able to convince their school’s leadership of their advantages. On this platform you can find support and free resources for the development of dual-language programs in schools.

We want to create more dual-language programs in schools around the world

Dual-language education is considered to be an effective way of learning a new language and, in many countries of the world, it represents an increasingly popular pedagogic approach. Here are CALEC’s initiatives and resources to help multiply the number of dual-language programs around the world.




Empowered parents can initiate dual-language programs for their children to either acquire a new language, preserve their linguistic heritage, or bestow upon them valuable skills and advantages to help them succeed in an interconnected, global world.
