Dear WERA Colleagues and friends,
WERA shares an opportunity to an online Symposium on Language Education and Multilinguslism, on 3-4 December 2020. If you would like to participate in this event, please see below invitation for more information.
Dear colleagues and friends,
From 2013-2020 the research cluster Language Education and Multilingualism aimed to increase knowledge about language development and learning under the multilingual conditions of a migration society. Following the United States and Saudi Arabia, Germany is the country with the third highest number of international migrants. An increasing number of young people thus grow up speaking a language other than or alongside German in their families. Moreover, all young people in this globalised society are expected to acquire foreign-language skills in education. So, what are the consequences of multilingualism for development, education, and skills?
Funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research, the projects of the cluster have focused on fundamental questions concerning multilingualism as a resource for learning and have tested the effectiveness of their research findings in educational practice.
On 3-4 December, we will share the design and research results of the projects
You can look forward to presentations on the following topics:
