Linguistic diversity in the classroom is a reality for many teachers in a variety of settings. How to address the issues that arise depends largely upon the skills and expertise of the professionals who are engaged in day- to-day practice.

Within a complex global society, traditional views on language teaching are under review at all levels of the educational establishment. This conference aims to create a forum in which to share different approaches and aspects of classroom practice. The intention is that educators can draw upon examples of successful learning experiences, in order to reflect upon and find meaningful responses for their own particular contexts.

During the conference we will be focusing on the following areas:

How do we engage our students in other languages? How do we involve a child's linguistic background? What makes a successful language learner? How does emotion affect language acquisition?

How do we deal with linguistic diversity? Can a challenge become a resource? How can we create relevant educational experiences for an increasingly multi-modal environment? Which approaches to teaching optimize use of both academic and social language acquisition? What are the effects on the student? How do we best attend to the needs of students who are just beginning to acquire a new language?


The conference language will be English. All sessions will take place at St. Peter's School, c/Eduard Toldrà, 18, 08034, Barcelona. Tel. +34 93 204 36 12. The event is aimed at professionals working within multilingual school environments, student teachers and researchers.
