My Take: By Taylor McClure

My Take: By Taylor McClure

As an English-speaking Quebecer, I consider myself pretty lucky to have a family that encourages bilingualism. I started to learn French from a young age and completed three years of my high school education in a French Immersion program. This experience made me realize how much of an impact learning a second language can have on our lives. I developed relationships with people I probably would have never met, I had conversations that provided me new insights and perspectives, and I gained experiences and opportunities I never would have if I didn’t know both the French and English language. More importantly, both of these languages coexist in my life and they continue to get me ten steps ahead. The topic of language is complex but one thing is simple; there is no harm in re-evaluating the important role that minority languages play in our country.
