World Refugee Day 2018

  • In a stunning bit of irony, given the United States' new hard line against people seeking asylum and safety, I have just realized that today is World Refugee Day.

    Duolingo celebrates World Refugee Day with this video. The lead-in says "Something Like Home is a Duolingo documentary about the impact of language and education on the lives of Syrian refugees in Turkey and Jordan. Over the years, thousands of people have written to us with stories of learning a new language in order to find a sense of identity, of safety, of home.
