podcast #28: Piñata politics, the Chinese-American generation gap and the bilingualism industry

In this cast, an explanation of piñata politics– and why that approach won’t work on election day. Then the political and linguistic divide between Chinese immigrant voters and their Chinese-American offspring. Then two hits on speaking two languages: Oregon votes on bilingual education, while more American parents chose to raise their children bilingually. We round off this episode with a tough-to-translate French phrase. Listen on iTunes or here.
