UKLA Viewpoints: Multilingualism and home language

UKLA believes that speaking more than one language is an asset.

  • Children’s home language and literacy experience needs to be recognised and built on in the classroom.
  • Effective learning and teaching for bi-/multilingual (and all other) children offers opportunities for meaningful contexts in which to read, talk and write.
  • A secure, authentic learning environment for language teaching uses culturally relevant resources and offers collaborative learning experiences.
