Antonella Sorace explores what it means to be a native speaker and how speaking more than one language affects individuals, communities and language itself, in this CODI show at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

Join Professor Antonella Sorace (Bilingualism Matters at The University of Edinburgh) to ask what it means to be a native speaker and discover how speaking more than one language affects individuals, communities and language itself.
