About the webinar

In classrooms around the world, multilingualism is becoming more and more common due to globalisation and increased migration. In this ever-changing world, proficiency in multiple languages is therefore becoming more of a necessity. Embracing linguistic diversity in education not only prepares students for the interconnected world but also enriches their academic experience and strengthens their cultural identity. Through an acceptance of multilingualism, teachers can help their learners enhance their communication skills, and foster intercultural understanding.

The aim of this webinar is to empower teachers with practical insights and strategies for effectively managing multilingual classrooms. Through a comprehensive exploration of the benefits and challenges of multilingualism, participants will gain valuable tips and resources to enhance their teaching approaches, and foster an inclusive and supportive learning environment for students with diverse linguistic backgrounds
