Due to COVID restrictions, the UKLA team is working from home. This is a challenging time for us all, so your patience is very much appreciated.

UKLA Viewpoints: Multilingualism and home language

  • 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.

You can download the full UKLA Viewpoint on multilingualism and home language to the right of this page.
