Mother Tongue Interference

Radio 4 have just broadcast a series of talking heads from five polyglots describing their experiences as learners and  users of English as an additional language.

From an MP in the UK parliament who started life in deepest rural Bavaria, to a Russian novelist who works now for the BBC World Service, the stories provide a fascinating insight into the world of bilingualism.

Definitely a recommended listen for those interested in peering through a window on to the world of our students.

All five episodes are available to listen to until May 2014 at the BBC website here.
