AMERICA'S BILINGUAL CENTURY How Americans Are Giving the Gift of Bilingualism to Themselves, Their Loved Ones, and Their Country

by | Read by Sean Pratt, Heavenly Reyna

Contemporary Culture • 16 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2021

Narrator Sean Pratt delivers an upbeat and conversational performance of this well-researched audiobook advocating that monolingual Americans learn to speak more than just English. Featuring several interviews with polyglots, linguists, businesspeople, teachers, and others, this audiobook clearly demonstrates the advantages of learning a second language, such as advancing one's career, connecting with immigrant relatives, or smoother world travel. Pratt's friendly tone creates an approachable listen for those interested in adopting a new language or curious about linguistic trends in America's history, and his array of worldly accents further highlights his presentation. The audiobook concludes with Heavenly Reyna as the voice of Emma, a fictitious college student giving an imagined interview about the benefits of bilingualism and how her institution--and America--flourishes under it.
