Why Language Matters

Australia is incredibly linguistically diverse yet faces a great decline in traditional language preservation and literacy avenues for migrant communities. The discourse around language maintenance, appropriation, translation and reawakening technology can feel like a mine field, but is it really that complicated? David, Dalisa, Kim and Daniel share their insights into how language can be kept alive and why it should be.
