It is estimated that over 300 languages are spoken in London. Many London residents are bilingual or multilingual, and use their languages on a daily basis in a variety of situations and contexts, both public and private.

As part of the event, there will be a panel discussion involving linguists and anthropologists, geographers, educators, and multilingual speakers. Audience members will be invited to share their own language biographies, and to contribute to a languages of London map during the event.
