NESET kicks-off the webinar series 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. 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.

To present and discuss in more details the most relevant findings of this report, NESET organised a series of 4 webinars on Language education and multilingualism. The first webinar of this series entitled “Helping multilingual children to catch up and succeed through the use of online language learning tools”, took place on June 18, 2020.

It was attended by:

  • Emmanuelle Le Pichon Vorstman (University of Toronto and University of Utrecht), 
  • Jim Cummins (University of Toronto), 
  • Nathalie Auger (University of Montpellier), and
  • moderated by Kristina Cunningham (DG EAC: European Commission).
