Inaugural lecture

Harrovians at the inaugural Sir William Jones Lecture welcomed Professor Li Wei, the Director of the Institute for Education at UCL.

The lecture, which is named after the famous philologist and 'father' of Indo-European Linguistics (and Old Harrovian), discussed the benefits of being bilingual and of code switching, which happens when speakers change back and forth between two languages they speak more or less fluently.
