The Bilingual Revolution

What is it?

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. It is also a book written by Dr. Fabrice Jaumont and translated into several languages. Through CALEC, the Bilingual Revolution has become a program focusing on advocacy, knowledge sharing, and the empowerment of linguistic communities around the world. Furthermore, CALEC maintains this online platform as a way to support the development of language education in schools, particularly in public schools, free of charge, and therefore accessible to every student and family.



Through our platform, publications, podcast, and case studies, CALEC is fulfilling its goal of providing accessible knowledge, guidance, and encouragement to parents, educators, and linguistic communities as they consider implementing a dual-language program in their community or school. We believe that children who have had a bilingual upbringing enjoy numerous benefits beyond the acquisition of another language, including a better appreciation of other cultures, other individuals, and even oneself. Additionally, the cognitive, emotional, and social advantages of being bilingual, biliterate, and multicultural should be offered to everyone.
