The Bilingual Brain: From Bilingual to Bicultural with Joy Menet
June 10 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm MDT$70.00
Have you ever wondered how being bilingual or multilingual affects your brain?
It is true that if you speak more than one language, your brain works differently than someone who is monolingual. Differently; not necessarily better. Furthermore, there is an important distinction to be made between being bilingual and being bicultural.
In this class, we will discuss and discover how these two concepts influence each other in our lives. During our exploration, we will identify the main factors that affect bilingualism and understand how they play a role in the way our brain functions.
We will use the Neurosculpting® process to raise self-confidence in our ability to code-switch and use our languages fluidly and effectively, whether you have a non-native accent or not.
Finally, we will explore how being bi/multicultural is a great asset to our everyday lives and create a practice that we can share with our loved ones.

How I Came to Climb! A Mountaineer’s Bio
In August 2007, Joy found her love for mountaineering when climbing her first fourteener ever: Longs Peak! In this same month, she moved to Ecuador where she began climbing mountains to train for the Huairasinchi – a 3-day adventure race through the Andes Mountains. During this time, she worked as a local guide on the weekends, taught an Adventure elective class to teenagers, and participated almost weekly in a mountaineering club, of which she later served as a volunteer president. Upon returning to the U.S. in 2013, she became a Certified Mountaineering, Rock Climbing and Wilderness Instructor through NOLS (National Outdoor Leadership School) and also began guiding seasonally for Wildland Trekking Company. Her gratitude for the lessons she has learned from the mountains runs deep, as is her is passion for sharing these lessons with her fellow students.
