Webinars on language education and multilingualism

NESET has recently published an extensive analytical report entitled The future of language education in Europe: case studies of innovative practices, building on its previous work in this area - Multilingual Education in the Light of Diversity: Lessons Learned. NESET is an international advisory network of experts working on the social dimension of education and training. It was set up at the initiative of the European Commission, and has been coordinated by PPMI since 2015. This report aims to support the implementation of the Council Recommendation on a comprehensive approach to the teaching and learning of languages, adopted by the Council of the European Union in 2019. It emphasises the importance of innovative language education in an increasingly interconnected and intercultural world.

The report incorporates six case studies on inspiring language teaching approaches, policies and tools implemented in various contexts across Europe and beyond. Join our series of 4 NESET webinars on Language education and multilingualism in which we will present and discuss in more details the most relevant findings of this report!
