Opening plenary session 

The Multilingual Turn in language education: an essential skill for the 21st century / By Nayr Ibrahim (British Council France)

Language learning in the 21st century goes beyond a mother language, a foreign language, a monolingual identity. Future societies require individuals with multilingual and intercultural competence, who can function in complex language situations. But the future is here today [...]

This multilingual scenario has a significant impact on children’s early experiences of language, literacy and identity. Yet, education systems continue to treat languages as separate entities.

This presentation explores multilingualism as a holistic phenomenon from a sociolinguistic, cognitive and affective perspective. It looks at how children develop and manage their multiple languages, what teachers can do to build on children’s linguistic repertoires, and why a multilingual approach is imperative for education systems.
