Bilingualism Across the U.S. Infographic and Reforma Southeast Meeting

Recently Sarah, an ¡Es Divertido Hablar Dos Idiomas! reader, contacted me to share this Infographic created and published by Bestcollegesonline.com.  This infographic provides a concise visual representation of the the rise of bilingualism in the United States over the last 30 years, presenting the most common languages other than English spoken at home and the many advantages of bilingualism.  Thank you for sharing this with us, Sarah!

I also would like to share with everyone that the next meeting of Reforma Southeast will be on June 7, 2-4 PM in the Centennial room in the Main Library of the Louisville Free Public Library.  If you are unfamiliar, Reforma is the National Organization to Promote Libraries and Information Services to Latinos and the Spanish-Speaking, an affiliate of the American Library Association.  The Southeast Chapter covers Alabama, Georgia, Kentucky, Mississippi, Tennessee and the parts of Virginia not covered by the D.C. chapter.  Our website is currently under renovation, so please visit and join our Facebook Group!  Most of our membership is in Kentucky, which is where we often hold our meetings, but anyone in these southeastern states is welcome to attend.  If you are interested in attending virtually, we can definitely set this up using Google video chat or Skype.  Please contact me through the blog by June 5 if you are interested in setting this up.  For anyone interested in becoming a Reforma Southeast member, this would be a great meeting to attend, as we will be discussing our goals for the upcoming year.
