Trailer: Speaking of Us
Speaking of Us explores what language teaches us about who we are and where we come from. Speaking of Us is brought to you by Wikitongues, a global network of grassroots linguists. Of the world’s 7,000 languages, only a handful are taught in schools or supported by mainstream technology, so Wikitongues helps people keep their languages alive. In this podcast, you’ll get to know people from every culture on Earth. You’ll learn about their languages, their history, and how they navigate our rapidly-changing world. If you’d like to be a part of an ever-expanding Us, we invite you to join our conversation. For accompanying media, guest information, and transcripts, visit www.wikitongues.org/podcast. And wherever you get your podcast, please subscribe, leave a review, and help Speaking of Us grow.
