Mind your language

Patricia Ryan | TEDxDubai

English is big business and languages are dying as never before. Is there a connection? Is this another manifestation of McDonaldisation — the undesirable face of globalization? Do we want to lose the variety of languages and all the rich culture that comes with them?

Patricia is British of Irish descent and has spent most of the past 40 years teaching English in the countries of the Arabian Gulf.
She is currently teaching at Zayed University in Dubai, and is studying for a second Masters degree in Law.

She is married and has five children, all of whom are bi-lingual Arabic-English speakers.
