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.

Welcome class - Turma de Acolhimento

The Welcome class targets pupils whose mother tongue is not Portuguese and who have recently arrived to Portugal to attend the 1st and 2nd cycles of the basic level (6 to 12 years old). Depending on the language proficiency level, Welcome class may take place about 10 hours per week. During that time, students are withdrawn from their original class and go to this special one. This happens until the pupil is ready to master the Portuguese language sufficiently to follow the classes. Pupils are identified by the Class Head Teacher, teachers or the school's Head Office (at the enrolment). The Welcome Class teacher identifies the pupil's needs and develops a strategy; when the pupil reaches the level of proficiency in Portuguese language required to participate in regular classes, (s)he returns to the original class.
