What is translanguaging and why bilingual pupils use it
++Free for members. REGISTRATION NEEDED – scroll down ++
In a changing world of increased migration, globalisation and new ways of communicating, there is more focus on multilingualism in education. Translanguaging is a theory that has gained growing attention lately. It entails both multilinguals’ complex language practices, as well as pedagogic theory.
In this informal session, Regina Harkin will share the findings of her study carried out among multilingual teenagers in Swedish complementary education in an English speaking country. It investigates how the students use their language resources in Swedish and English when they interact in small groups to deepen their understanding of extracts from Swedish novels. There will be an opportunity for discussion and Q&A.
