But it isn't quite that simple:

Did you know that most of the different languages we speak today can actually be placed in only a couple of groups by their origin? This is what illustrator Minna Sundberg has captured in an elegant infographic of a linguistic tree which reveals some fascinating links between different tongues.

If you can read it, hear it, see it, think it, there’s a good chance The Library of Congress has it. With a collection of over 160 million items, it’s the largest library in the world, home to historical landmarks such as the Gutenberg Bible, the original copy of the “Star Spangled Banner” and the first portrait of Abraham Lincoln. Let’s dive in.

How NYC's First Puerto Rican Librarian Brought Spanish To The Shelves

When Pura Belpré became a librarian in 1921, she couldn't find Spanish language books for kids — so she wrote them herself. Belpré would go on to become a champion of bilingual library programs.

This school is teaching the art of conversation across disciplines. The ability to converse in a clear, respectful, and intellectual manner can sometimes make or break you in the "real" world. Equipping students at a young age to engage in problem-solving language is so important and necessary in an ever-evolving, multimodal conversational culture! Love this!

Through the study of oracy, these students are able to articulate their thoughts and learning in an amazingly advanced way.
