Applying linguistics to education for multilingualism in South Tyrol
MetadataShow full item record
At: Research Seminar ; Saarbrücken ; 16/04/2019 ; Multilingualism is not only part of the daily life of an increasing number of people, but also a growing research field in applied linguistics. In my presentation, I would like to show what happens when insights from this field are applied to education. By giving examples from projects being carried out in the trilingual province of South Tyrol, Italy, I will delineate some of the ways in which linguists can and do shape educational policies and practices with regard to language(s) and multilingualism.
