At a time when 31 states have passed “English Only” laws, four pioneering families put their children in public schools where, from the first day of kindergarten, their teachers speak mostly Chinese or Spanish.

Speaking in Tongues follows four diverse kids on a journey to become bilingual. This charming story will challenge you to rethink the skills that Americans need in the 21st century.

How could Highline Public Schools benefit from expanded dual language programming?

The community is invited to attend the Highline Schools Foundation’s presentation of the documentary film “Speaking in Tongues” as part of its bi-annual Symposium Series, Tuesday, May 8th beginning at 7:00 pm at Mount View Elementary School.

After the screening of the documentary “Speaking in Tongues” please join us for a post-film discussion facilitated by Highline School district staff and hosted by the Foundation.
