In the 2016 film Arrival, deciphering alien communication changed one scientist’s life - and the history of Planet Earth. Outside Hollywood, learning a new language might not give you super powers - but there is growing evidence that the cognitive habits you develop through speaking a particular language can impact the way you perceive, think about and remember the world around you. Alice Gaby will discuss what this will mean for multilingual Melbourne.

You’ll leave with a better understanding of the application of a sound narrative in helping you tell more compelling stories.
