Andre Laurendeau Quotations

(Language) is at the core of the intellectual and emotional life of every personality….It is used for the trivia of (everyday) living, on the labour market, in professional activities, in several forms of recreation, in church, in clubs, in schools, and so on. We will mention later the difficulties, which may be dramatic in their intensity, faced by a bilingual person who must work in his second language – his sense of being diminished, the irritation which frequently results, and his loss of efficiency.
