3. Support to learners

3.8. Targeted support - Language

Multilingual classrooms are a growing reality in EU countries: more and more schoolchildren have a mother tongue different from the main language of instruction in school and need additional linguistic support. Teaching needs to adapt to various ways of strengthening language proficiency of immigrant learners with different linguistic backgrounds. In multilingual schools and classrooms, students may speak one language at home and another at school; some or all of the students are learning the language of instruction.

LUCIDE Toolkit on multilingualism in education

Increased mobility and changing patterns of migration are having a major impact on education systems throughout the world. The need to equip all levels of the school workforce for working effectively with children who are new to the host countrys language has been apparent for some time. It is not only children who are new to the host country who need support bilingual learners do too. Growing up and living in a family where two or more languages are spoken changes linguistic ability and the way one learns. Bilingual learners thus have specific needs ? and in particular require special resources for learning. These resources build the foundation of their development and learning.
