Born in Paris, this prominent scholar became bilingual himself when he was sent to an English boarding school in Switzerland at the age of eight and then moved to the United Kingdom when he was 14. Having had such an experience, he decided to dedicate his career to psycholinguistics, receiving a PhD and a doctorat d’Etat from the University of Paris. He then became a faculty member at various universities in France, the United States, and Switzerland. A former director of the Language and Speech Processing Laboratory, he is Professor Emeritus of the University of Neuchâtel, Switzerland.

After publishing eight books on psycholinguistics and bilingualism, the first one published by Harvard University Press, François Grosjean is now presenting his research on the linguistics and cognition of bilingualism in his new book Parler plusieurs langues–le monde des bilingues, as well as his very successful blog Life as a bilingual on Psychology Today.
