Native French speaker Kris Letang talks the benefit of being bilingual!
Michelle Crechiolo @PensInsideScoop / Penguins Team Reporter interviewed Kris Letang, a native French Speaker, about his experience on learning the language as a young man, early into his NHL career and the benefit of being bilingual.
here’s an excerpt:
“I wish growing up, being bilingual or trilingual was something that schools focused on more,” Letang said. “I feel like all through elementary school and high school even, we didn’t work enough on our English. Especially since it’s the universal language. When people all over the world communicate, that’s what they use. So I think they should increase the focus of it in schools.”
