Did you know that the number of people in the US who speak a language other than English at home has nearly tripled in the past four decades? According to a recent report from the US Census Bureau, 22% of US residents (or 67.8 million people) now primarily use a language other than English at home, compared to just 10% (23.1 million) in 1980. While the number of English speakers has also grown, the growth has been much less significant. As the population of foreign language speakers grows, it’s likely that demand for improved language access will also increase.
We were ecstatic to publish our latest collection of Fadilah’s stories on EduLang. We are introducing this collection with great enthusiasm because the stories in it are deeply relatable to the refugee and immigrant community. These stories speak to the experiences, challenges, and triumphs of this population in a way that is authentic and meaningful. We believe that by sharing these stories, we can create a sense of connection and understanding among readers from all walks of life, and contribute to the celebration of diversity and inclusivity. We really appreciate Talal’s effort in validating the Arabic translation
