How is an “r” indifferent in English and Arabic? Can drumming help you learn to speak English better? Why do sounds go missing when people talk fast, and how do listeners find them again? These two workshops (17 and 22 November) will combine music and science in a set of activities ranging from drumming to ultrasound to help immigrants and bilinguals appreciate the complexity and diversity of their various languages, and to help high school students learn how discoveries about language and the mind are made.
