Kids tell us....

Here is a great link to a video clip that has children describing in their own words why it's important for them to use and develop their first language.  The teacher at the beginning of the clip, Eithne Gallgher, has written a book, "Equal Rights to the Curriculum: Many Languages, One Message" and her students share their insights on the importance of language.  You can skip the first minute to get right to the students telling you about their language use.  Inspiring!
