    DescriptionMigration is a hot button political topic in Australia, particularly when used by those who say they fear migrants are coming to this country with no understanding of the English language or Australian values. Professor Ingrid Piller talks to us about her research into migrant English language learning, generational patterns of language transmission, and how bilingualism can be a surprise asset for Australian communities.
