Is the world’s focus on English preventing the spread of great ideas in other languages?

Dan Gould
  • 31 march 2011

At TEDxDubai, longtime English teacher Patricia Ryan asks a provocative question: Is the world’s focus on English preventing the spread of great ideas in other languages? (For instance: what if Einstein had to pass the TOEFL?) It’s a passionate defense of translating and sharing ideas. (Recorded at TEDxDubai, December 2010, in Dubai, UAE. Duration: 10:35)
