Thanks to this tweet, I learned about this amazing short film:

Many of our ELL students (and non-ELL students) are language “brokers” for their families.

I’ll definitely be showing this film to my class.  You can watch it for free here (I can’t seem to find it on YouTube or on another site that provides embedding options).

However, I was able to find the trailer for the film, along with news interviews where you can hear more from the film’s creators.  Those videos are embedded below.
