Happy Hour no°165 – Monday 1st Oct 2012 – Tongue twisters!

For all you bilingual people out there – have you ever wondered if learning a second language has influenced your native tongue and how?

In an effort to understand our brain’s reaction to languages, I’ve invited Shiri Lev-Ari to the studio to explain her recent study (in which I was a guinea pig!!) and why she chose to carry it out here in France.

Currently a post-doctoral scholar at the Ecole Normale Supérieure in Paris – Shiri is also an avid traveler, who speaks several languages, Hebrew being her native one. See her professional profile on http://www.lscp.net/persons/shiri/
